Domaine de Bellene 2015 Bourgogne Rouge Offer
The 2015 Red Burgundies: You Are So Going To Want Them. STEPHEN TANZER
The return of the King, what I regard as one of the best value wines out of Burgundy is just about to land in Melbourne again. We have managed to secure a bit more of the utterly delicious and decidedly well priced 2015 Bellene Bourgogne Rouge. Every time I have had this wine, from the first taste at the Domaine in 2016 until the last bottle vanished quickly off our shelves last year I have had the same thought, this is the best value wine in the style going around at the moment.
I think most of our customers who buy Burgundy will be well and truly familiar with the wines of Nic Potel but for those who are not Nic is one of the most intelligent, thoughtful and energetic wine people you will ever encounter. Nothing is done by half measures at Domaine de Bellene, in fact he is always full steam ahead and driven to make the greatest examples he can up and down the quality hierarchy in his stable. While his top wines are always super his Bourgogne tends to punch well above its weight as nothing is spared in the making of what is his most accessible wine.
All of his wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered and the Bourg Rouge is sourced from vines with an average age of 67 years giving extra weight and concentration to the fruit. Winemaking is no different here to his top climats as he has always held the belief that his entry level wine is often the example consumers see first and can access most readily so it needs to be banging, a wine to carry the quality if his Domaine to the people. The 2015 is hands down the best example of this wine to date yet and for this price it is stupendous value.
We are offering the wine at a very special dozen price of only $35, more than 20% off the regular price and cant stress enough that this is the perfect go to bottle of red that should be in everyone’s house for those times you feel like something with a good dollop of sophistication that doesn’t have the price tag to match. The ship is due soon and we will let you know as soon as the wines are ready to collect.
