Domaine Christian Bellang
In 1974 Christian Bellang took over his parents' estate with vines mainly in Meursault as well as some of his father in law's vines in Savigny-Lès-Beaune. His son Christophe joined him in 1995 and together they expanded the estate to a total of 9 hectares. Today Christophe manages the estate and bottles around 40% of production under his own label. He makes wines which are fruit forward, easy going and perfect for drinking young.
Vines are grown according to the principles of Lutte Raisonnée. The wines are vinified in oak barrels using indigenous yeasts and are aged barrel for between 10 and 18 months depending on the vintage and the appellation. There's an attractiveness to these wines that is immediate from the get go; it's lovely to be able to find good Burgundy producers who make wines that are both affordable and fun. Bellang does exactly that!
