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
At 450m above sea level, the south-east facing Feu vines lie on the red clay sediments of glacial waterfalls. The nose is floral and fruity, and on the palate, freshness, minerality and balance make for an excellent white. To be opened in its first ten years, decant this wine an hour before serving.
