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.
About the cuvée
Les Perles du Mont Blanc is made using the Champagne method and aged on racks for a minimum of two years. Direct and mellow on the palate, it’s perfect as an aperitif but can also pair very well with entire meals. In the words of Dominique Belluard, it’s “as light and fresh as our montain air”.
