2017 Roche de Bellene Nuits St. Georges Vieilles Vignes (Previously $60)

SKU #1445133 Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Like several of these 2017s, there is just enough reduction to blur the detail of the earthy and sauvage-inflected dark berry fruit scents and as such I would suggest giving it a brief but thorough aeration. Here too there is acceptable if not special concentration to the round, supple and relatively forward middle weight flavors that possess evident warmth on the otherwise lingering finale. However, the warmth is not subtle and for me it’s enough to detract from the overall sense of balance. Inner quote mark (4/2020)

K&L Notes

From the importer: "Maison Roche de Bellene is the négociant (making wine with fruit from other growers) of Nicolas Potel, the well-known and highly regarded winemaker in Burgundy. Nicolas is an old friend of Ernst Loosen, and we are extremely happy to have him as part of our import portfolio. Founded in 2009, the emphasis at Roche de Bellene is on individual terroirs from vieilles vignes (old vines — 40 years or older) that are farmed responsibly. All of the growers that Nicolas works with are either BIO certified or farming according to the principles of lutte raisonée ('sustainable viticulture')."
