Domaine Belluard, Vin de Savoie ‘Grandes Jorasses’ 2013

Imported by Free Run, Seattle WA.

Five years on.

100% Altesse from south facing vineyards at 450 meters.  Grown in limestone and iron-rich soils, raised in concrete eggs.  Organic/BIO.

Lemon yellow.  Less enigmatic than his Gringet cuvées, the Altesse varietal offering more invigoration and zest.   Caramelized grass and just honeyed lemon; almond blossom and textured apple-skin.  Spins in the mouth, energized by a dense mineral foundation.  Now.
