Country: France

Region: Savoie

Grapes: Gringet

Vintage: 2019

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.

Mont Blanc is a traditional method sparkling Gringet, made with grapes picked from Dominique's oldest vines which grow at 450-meters above sea level in iron heavy soils. The wine spends three years on the lees before disgorgement, with zero dosage. A beautiful, mineral expression of Gringet with white flowers, hazelnut and citrus skins on the nose. It's delicately full and creamy on the palate with saline and bitter flavours and a very pure finish.
