Grapes: 80% Gamay, 20% Pinot Noir
Region: Beaujolais (Gamay) & Côte d’Or (Pinot Noir)
The Bellenos wines are grown on the sunny slopes of the Coteaux Bourguignons (“Hillsides of Burgundy”) appellation. This new appellation was created to showcase the classic taste of the entire Burgundy region, from the Côte d’Or in the north to Beaujolais in the south. Produced by Nicolas Potel at his négociant company, Maison Roche de Bellene, the Bellenos cuvées are the graceful result of Burgundy’s cool yet sunny climate, noble terroir, and traditional grape varieties — all in the hands of heartfelt winemaking.
Primarily from the Beaujolais area in the south of Burgundy, where fruity, mineral-inflected Gamay Noir is grown on granite soils. It is blended with finely structured Pinot Noir from the Côte d’Or in northern Burgundy. The result is a fresh, fruit-forward “Vin de Plaisir” — a deliciously expressive wine for everyday enjoyment.
