is the fifth generation to run his eponymous family estate in the southern Côte de Beaune. His 24 hectares (59 acres) of vineyards are mainly in the best premier and grand crus in the villages of Santenay, Maranges, Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet, Meursault, Volnay, and Pommard.
Staunchly following a philosophy of quality, Domaine Roger Belland has been widely praised by the press: the estate has been featured in numerous magazines and wine guides, including La Revue du Vin de France, Guide Hachette, Gault Millau, Bettane & Dessauve, and others.
Roger Belland adheres to lutte raisonnée in the vineyards, with close pruning, strict debudding, and full grass cover. This meticulous care almost entirely eliminates the need for extreme solutions like green harvesting later in the season. The vines, which average 45 years of age, face south-southeast, allowing for excellent quality and yields limited to a maximum of 40 hectoliters per hectare. The harvest is manual, with a strict selection in the vineyards. These meticulous, attentive methods ensure that each cuvée can rightly be called a "grand vin de Bourgogne".
