2010 Bourgogne Rouge VV 'Maison Dieu' Domaine de Bellene

Bourgogne Rouge VV 'Maison Dieu' Domaine de Bellene
No stems are used in this cuvee which shows a fine and vibrant purple colour. There is a gentle pinot fragrance to the nose, medium depth and a characteristicly fresh finish, a hallmark of the 2010 vintage. This is beautifully balanced and altogether excellent value.
Jasper Morris MW, Burgundy Director

2010 is the fourth vintage of this recently created domaine which is vinified by Sylvain Debord in the now largely refurbished winery on the edge of Beaune, all under the watchful eye of Nicolas Potel. Nicolas and Sylvian are particularly keen to use 450 and 600 litre barrels rather than the traditionally smaller Burgundian size, as they aerate the wines nicely without adding too much of an oak effect. The senior wines such as Beaune Grèves and upwards, are vinified with all of their stems.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Delicious & enjoyable A very smooth red which pleases the taste buds and is easy on the nose. Goes down a treat with or without food. I consider this good value. 19 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fine wine indeed. As a relative newcomer to wines from Burgundy, I have always suspected they are fundamentally acidic, bone-dry wines without enough fruit. And it would be easy to dismiss this as the same. But I gave it a some time. On first tasting, as soon as the bottle was open, it came over as very pointed, linear, and sharp - maybe too much so. An hour or two later and something else began to unfold: that linearity became laser-like - a sharp penetration of fruit coming after an intriguingly subtle nose of light, early summer fruits - all very well balanced to give a lovely satisfying mouthful. The following day, and this really had developed more body and length almost transforming from its first showing. It's still very acidic and dry - it needs to be drunk with something pretty salty to balance it all out and get the best out of it. But this really is an exceptionally well made wine - "precise" and "concerted" are the words that spring to mind. Lovely stuff! 18 January 2014
