Domaine Belluard Monsieur Gringet
Domaine Belluard is an iconic estate in Savoie with vines high up in the Alps not far from Chamonix. Under the auspices of the legendary Dominique Belluard until his sudden passing in 2021, the domaine is renowned for elevating the local Gringet variety to new heights, and producing exceptionally pure and precise wines from vines grown without herbicides or pesticides. Going forward the domaine will be known as Domaine du Gringet, and young Ardèche winemaker Vincent Ruiz will be at the helm.
Monsieur Gringet is from grapes grown on the domaine's hillside vines that grow in a mixture of white and red marl, and limestone. Aged for 18 months in ovoid concrete tanks and bottled with a specific label chosen by Valérie Belluard, this is pure and alpine fresh with searing lemon acidity and tremendous richness and power developing.
