Camille Paquet started to take over his parents’ Domain in August 2015, working both in the vines and in the vinification process.The nose displays fine and structured aromas of spices, notes of small red fruits (Morello cherries) and notes of black fruits (blackberries).

2015 MAISON ROCHE DE BELLENE BOURGOGNE “Vieille Vignes” $23
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. Their focus is on expressive, terroir-driven wines from old vines (35-100+ years old). Domaine de Bellene has what they call a “global” approach to winemaking – one that respects the environment and the terroir. As such, their vineyards have been farmed according to biodynamic practices since 2006 and are now certified BIO. Furthermore, vinification is minimalist in approach — no enzymes, cultured yeasts, chaptalization, or acid adjustments are used, and filtration is avoided. Classic Pinot from Burgundy.

Lovely juicy, fruit driven Burgundy. On the nose ripe aromas of pear and green apple with hints of white flowers and citrus.
