This cuvée is made using Gringet grown on a terroir of limestone scree and yellow marl. It is produced using pneumatic pressing, alcoholic and malolactic fermentation with indigenous yeasts, aging in egg-shaped cement vats. While floral and fruity on the nose, in the mouth, Les Alpes exudes a superb minerality. A delicious wine with a lingering finish, to be drunk young.
Dominique Belluard took up the family domain after completing studies in viticulture and oenology. Very quickly, he realised the treasure he had to tend to. As this project progressed, the producer went from conventional growing to organic, later converting to biodynamic agriculture. Not a simple feat considering his ten hectares of vines grow on steep slopes in the Savoie region. All this work has one objective: to preserve the Gringet grapes he proudly keeps. This is a real jewel, as only around twenty hectares of this varietal are grown worldwide! In the winery, work is just as thorough. Vinification involves very little intervention so the wine can express the nobility of its varied terroir, as well as the identity of the Gringet and Mondeuse grapes. Wild yeasts ferment the juice, and the wine is matured in amphora and concrete, ovoid containers. We recommend these wines for their finesse and strong, aromatic personality.
