Domaine Belluard, Vin de Savoie ‘Le Feu’ 2012

Imported by Free Run, Seattle WA.

The single-vineyard Gringet, named Le Feu (fire) because of its iron-rich red soil.  South-facing vineyard, sitting at 450 meters.  Raised in concrete eggs.

Yellow-gold.  Tamarind and guava and sea-spray nori, with power, spice and focus.  The finish hints at woodsiness and swells into something salty.  Now.
