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+.
