In the village of Ayse, in the heart of the Arve valley, a vineyard spreads over extremely steep slopes. The Belluard domaine cultivates the distinctive Gringet variety on 10 of its 22 hectares of land. Dominique Belluard chose to convert to biodynamic farming in 2001, which has contributed to his wines’ growing recognition. He produces exacting, wonderfully elegant wines. The old vintages of the Le Feu cuvée are true gems.
About the cuvée
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.
