The focus 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 Nicolas works with are either BIO certified or farming according to the principles of lutte raisonée (sustainable viticulture).
The entry-level red Burgundy comes from old-vine vineyards in the Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise. The major part (80%) of this wine is matured in barriques and the remainder is produced in stainless steel. This maintains a pure style with bright fruit and a fine texture.
