Belluard Vin de Savoie 'Les Alpes' 2015
Hailing from one of the most noteworthy producers in all of Savoie, Belluard’s ‘Les Alpes’ is 100% Grignet, a unique, indigenous grape to the region. Grapes ferment spontaneously with natural yeasts, reaching a low, final ABV of 12%. Smoky, floral, and totally one of a kind.
The reference point for greatness; the fount of most wine-specific vocabulary; and the nation most identified with viticulture and winemaking expertise. As awesome as Italy but a little snootier.
