Type: White Wine
Belluard is a 10-acre estate located in Ayse, a commune in Savoie, France. The family has been making wine since 1947. Dominique Belluard had worked these intensely steep and difficult vines from 1988 until his death in June 2021.
This wine is 100% Gringet - Domaine Belluard has about half of the Gringet planted in the world. The domaine practices organic and biodynamic viticulture, uses no pesticides or herbicides in the vineyard and no additives in the winemaking process.
The grapes are fermented using only native yeasts. They are directly pressed and the juice is fermented with only indigenous yeast in several concrete eggs where it stays for about 6 months. The contents of all the eggs are then blended in stainless steel tanks prior to bottling, when a small amount of sulfur is added.
Elegant and mineral-driven, with lovely texture, white floral aromas and notes of smoke and jasmine.
