SCE DU CLOS BELLEFOND

Laurence et Bernard Chapelle

SCE DU CLOS BELLEFONDResulting from an old vigneronne family originating in Santenay, Louis NIE acquired, in 1889, the Domaine du CLOS BELLEFOND, which remains still a family winegrowing today. Located at the South of the Côte de Beaune, Santenay , cité wine, tourist and… thermal, the Field exclusively exploits appellations villages and Premiers Crus on finings of SANTENAY, CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET, VOLNAY and POMMARD. On these grounds geologically varied of the Côte de Beaune, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, used out of mono-type of vine, allow the vinificator to express perfectly the typicity of the wines. Faithful to the Burgundian traditions and without worrying about the phenomena of mode, after a manual harvest with the rigorous sorting, the wine makings take place out of tanks of oak, opened and under trays, during ten days. The wines are then matured out of barrels, during one period from 18 to 20 months according to the powerfull of the vintage; bottled then preserved in our cellars until their forwarding. Gorgeous Santenay Clos Bellefond 2013, fleshy and bold, with a complex and subtle nose, dominated by cherry, with persistent notes of smoke, blueberry and spices on the palate. Beautiful Volnay-Santenots Premier Cru red 2014, with ripe tannins, aromas of red fruits and undergrowth, of a nice frame on the palate. The Pommard Premier Cru La Platière 2014, of a beautiful color with violet reflections, combining structure and distinction, very classic, very perfumed, with these notes of humus, leather and fruits overripe. Their Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot Premier Cru 2013, with its intense aromas (redcurrant, blackberry) and this hint of spices, with tasty tannins, blends fat and intensity, a well-typed wine, all in nuances on the palate, like this Santenay Premier Cru La Comme 2014, very balanced, blends structure and flexibility, with ripe and complex aromas of red fruits and liquorice, of deep garnet colour.
