Nicolas Potel, the well-known and highly regarded winemaker in Burgundy, has founded a new Domaine (estate-owned vineyards) and Maison (a négociant, making wine with fruit from other growers).
Nicolas is an old friend of Ernst Loosen, and we are extremely happy to offer his wines through the Loosen Bros. USA portfolio.
For the next two weeks, Nicolas will be touring Massachusetts and Florida with Loosen Bros. USA representatives Ian Dick and Sarah Noble.
If you’ll be near Massachusetts or Florida, you’ll have several opportunities to meet Nicolas and taste his amazing wines. Hope to see you at one of these events.

MORE ABOUT DOMAINE DE BELLENE
Domaine de Bellene is a 24-hectare (59 acre) estate, with parcels in the villages of Beaune, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Saint-Roman, Santenay, Savigny-les-Beaune, Volnay and Vosne-Romanée. The focus is on expressive, terroir-driven wines from old vines (minimum 35 years old).
The vineyards have been farmed according to Biodynamic practices since 2006 and are now certified BIO. Vinification is minimalist in approach — no enzymes, cultured yeasts, chaptalization or acid adjustments are used and filtration is avoided.
Nicolas purchased the 16th century estate buildings in 2005 and is working to renovate them in as green a manner as possible. Environmental responsibility is being integrated into all aspects of the estate: buildings, vineyards, cellar work, energy conservation and production, and packaging materials.
