Oh man, “The Fire”. The most exciting wine I’ve had this year. Belluard is clearly a skillful master of the art of winemaking. Like a Grand Cru champagne, Le Feu somehow manages to simultaneously be extremely concentrated and complex while remaining transparent and elegant. The wine gets its name from the red iron stained soils of Ayse near the border to Switzerland.
This put Gringet on the map for me.
