Five years on tasting.
The single-vineyard Gringet, named Le Feu (fire) because of its iron-rich red soil. The vineyard sits at 450 meters. Raised in concrete eggs.
Yellow-gold. Rippling with energy to the point of hyperactivity. A smoldering intensity: moraine, lemon ice and a smoky mineral reduction. Stony citrus, tangerine and melon fruit with pinpoint, lapidary cut. Not too goose-pimpled or broody. The energy does face outward so this is readable and ripe. Ferrous and salt-crusted at the end. Seismic Savoie. Drink your bottle(s) by the glass over a week. Now – 2019.
