Domaine Belluard, Vin de Savoie ‘Le Feu’ 2009

Belluard Feu 2009

Five years on tasting.

100% Gringet from eastern Savoie.  Raised in concrete eggs.

Lemon-yellow.  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.
