Domaine Belleville was established in Rully at the beginning of the 20th century in the heart of wine-making Burgundy. With 22 hectares of vineyards spread out from north to south Burgundy, its wines express a diverse range of characteristics from both the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varietals. Domaine Belleville was purchased in 2017 by an American couple and group of international friends and partners who have since also acquired the Champagne house Leclerc Briant and Manoir Murisaltien in Meursault.
Domaine Belleville Gevrey Chambertin Creux Brouillard 2017
Lovely black fruit aromas are backed by toasted notes. Fruit forward, powerful and complex at the same time. Tannins are well-integrated and the wine has an elegant, long-lasting finish. Pair with grilled red meat, boeuf Bourguignon, coq au vin, lamb dishes….
The grapes are all sorted and destemmed. Cold maceration lasts for 3-5 days and is followed by alcoholic fermentation for 15-20 days. 1 or 2 ‘remontages’ are carried out a day plus ‘pigeage’ to extract the tannins and lend good structure to the wine. The free-run juice is blended with the pressed juice before aging in oak casks for a period of 12-16 months. Fining and light filtration are used before bottling on the estate.
