Domaine Belluard, Vin de Savoie ‘Le Feu’ 2010

Belluard Feu 2010 #1

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.  Pitched higher in the register in juxtaposition to the ’09.  Wildflowers and alpine herb.  Plenty of palate staining dry extract to buffer the taser-like acidity.  Dramatic, crammed with matière, overcome by nervosité.  The ’09 is serene by comparison.  Needs time.  One to cellar and revisit.  Now – 2020+.
