JR 93
Jancis Robinson - Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages, May 2012
Leaf-mould nose that is most attractive. Racy and lively. Bone-dry finish. Needs to take on a bit more fat before it's seductive. But it is much fleshier than the 1993. Drink 2016 to 2030.

Winery

Roche de Bellene, Maison

Maison Roche de Bellene is a negociant business in Burgundy launched in 2009 by Nicolas Potel, the owner of Domaine de Bellene. The business offers only the finest wines in limited cuvees to achieve its goal: to be the only “Haute Couture" negociant in Burgundy. Grapes are sourced from the same growers that Nicolas has been working with the last 15 years, who are either BIO certified or practice sustainable farming methods. The range of wines includes the widest selection of Grand Crus, prestige cuvees and individual terroirs from old vines both the Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuits.

Bellene comes from the name “Belenos”, an ancient Gallic god of sun and beauty similar to Apollon to the Greeks and to the god of the sun to the Celtic. Beaune City was named “Belena” during the Roman period and “Bellene” in the Middle Ages.
