Domaine Belleville was created in Rully at the beginning of the 20th century and has 22 hectares of vineyards spread throughout Burgundy. They produce an impeccable range of wines which have a true sense of place and provide delicious drinking.
The grapes for the La Pucelle see a gentle pressing and the must is left to settle for 12-24 hours before a slow and full alcoholic fermentation takes place in 228 litre oak casks at cool temperatures. The wine is then matured in oak casks for a period of 10-18 months with the proportion of oak used varying depending on the vintage. Lees stirring in barrel encourages both body and freshness.
An expressive bouquet of butter, mouth watering citrus and fleshy white fruits. The Pucelle is structured and impeccably balanced on the palate with a surprising mellowness backed by toasty notes and a very classy touch of minerality on the long, lingering finish.

2019 vinhas velhas, luis pato, bairrada
Luís Pato has been making wine here since 1980, ten years after his father became the first producer to estate bottle wines after the Bairrada DOC was granted. A stalwart of the region and local hero, Luis Pato has produced a consistently wonderful white from the traditional Bairrada white varieties of Bical, Cercial and Sercialinho from vines with an average age of 40 years old. Stainless steel fermentation produces arefreshing white with Pear, Apple and white flower aromatics which carry through to the palate and are underpinned by a nutty, almond complexity. Mix in a saline edge to the crisp, balanced acidity and you are left with a wonderful white which is evocative of the region.

nv grande reserve, champagne gosset, ay
This cuvée has a bright and golden colour. The nose is dominated by the freshness and the fruit. The Chardonnay brings finesse sustained by notes of yellow fruits such as peach and Mirabelle plum. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and generous. The Pinot Noir of Ay gives its structure. Hawthorn and white flowers merge naturally. Acidity is expressed by citrus fruits.

nv cremant du jura ‘cuvee bethanie’, fruitiere vinicole arbois
One of our best selling sparkling wines, this stunning Cremant is given added complexity by the addition of 2cl of Vin Jaune at dosage. The result adds a rich, nutty and savoury edge to what is otherwise traditional method 100% Chardonnay, which tasted blind could pass for an aged Champagne. Not everyone's cup of tea but certainly popular and curious enough to keep customers coming back for more!
