In 2017, an American couple with a passion for art became the owners of Domaine Belleville in Burgundy. Jean-Luc Vitoux is the co-owner of this great winegrowing house in the region. He is developing organic viticulture on several of his vineyard plots.

The owner works the Domaine Belleville vineyard with great passion and respect for the terroir. Harvesting is done by hand. The grapes are destemmed to avoid damage. The domaine produces red and white wines of exceptional quality. The white and red Rully wines are very fine Burgundy Grands Crus.

Domaine Belleville is located in Rully on the Côte Châlonnaise, in central Burgundy. Of Domaine Belleville's 22 hectares of vines, Jean-Luc Vitoux manages 18. The vineyards cover 16 hectares in Rully and Mercurey. Other vineyard plots are located in Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny, Puligny-Montrachet and Santenay.
