About the Wine

The Domaine de Bellene Savigny Les Beaune Blanc is sourced from four vineyards within the Savigny-les-Beaune commune, planted between 1960 and 2010. The combination of different ages of vines results in a variety of aromas and flavours in the wine. All plots were harvested on the same day and the grapes were gently pressed, with gravity used to move the juice.

In the winery, the Domaine de Bellene Savigny Les Beaune Blanc sees around 10% new oak and 100% of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation, giving it lovely creamy notes. The wine also shows hints of apple and herbs, with an elegant palate that will match well with a range of foods.

About Domaine de Bellene

Domaine de Bellene (the old name for Beaune) was set up by Burgundy winemaker Nicolas Potel in 2005 and was originally named Domaine Nicolas Potel - this was changed to avoid confusion with the negociant business Maison Nicolas Potel. The Potel family became famous due to their ownership of Domaine de La Pousse d'Or. The Burgundians know how to confuse...

The winery is located in an historic building in the centre of Beaune and ur estate is set in very old and historical buildings bought in 2006, and located at street Faubourg Saint Nicolas in Beaune. Their 24 hectares of vineyards stretch across many appellations and are all focused on organic farming - Potel's goal is for Bellene to be Burgundy's first outright major organic Domaine.

They represent some of the best value Burgundies we've seen in a while.

Additional Info

From the Producer

The 2019 vintage confirms the climatic upheaval we have known since the beginning of this century. The buds began their growth in the third week of March, exposing the vine to a high risk of spring frosts. April was very hot, allowing rapid growth of the vines. The summer was marked by two heat waves in mid-June and mid-July causing significant water stress. The harvest was of very high quality and maturity. The grapes have been sorted and most of our cuvées are in whole bunches. We vatted for around three weeks, followed by a one-year aging in barrels, mostly aged of one or two wines in order to preserve the complexity of the terroir that is expressed in our wines.

Critic Reviews

"A cooler and exuberantly fresh nose speaks mostly of various white orchard fruit and citrus nuances where hints of humus lurk in the background. The delicious flavors possess both a finer texture and more evident minerality that carries over to the refreshing, clean and nicely dry finale." BURGHOUND

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
