September 8, 2021 - Apricots, fallen apples, fresh herbs. Medium weight. Beautiful savory finish with a touch of oxidized nuttiness.
May 31, 2020 - Almost 8 yo and drinking great. Grapefruit, mountain herbs. Delicious.
November 21, 2019 - This wine has evolved since I drank it last. Still dry, clean, and crisp but so much more complex. Aromas of apricot and peach have appeared and are followed by pear and apple and Reine Claude. Long fruity finish w/o any sweetness. Glad I can keep cellaring the last bottle.
August 18, 2018 - Getting tired. I prefer these on release.
January 29, 2018 - Domaine Belluard is a champion for how great the wines from the Gringet grape can be. In these able hands, the Gringet wines excel. This is their dry version, that is competitive with Chardonnay, including the high acid style from Burgundy, the concentrated ones from Sonoma Coast in California, and the rich ones from Meursault. Also, his sparkling Gringet is competitive with Champagne Blanc de Blancs. Overall, an impressive combination of vivid and lively acidity, juiciness, excellent texture, tasty lemon citrus fruit, and richness.
March 3, 2016 - bright color, no signs of age, very mineral wine, gains complexity in the glass. Substantial and good structure - excellent mountain wine, I would be celebrating this wine more if it were less expensive.
January 2, 2016 - Consistent with previous notes. Nice burst of kiwi-lime on the ultra dry finish, after the slightly creamy/round palate. Paired nicely with spicy yellow curry.
November 29, 2015 - This is really good, so unique, so much minerality, decent heft in the mid palate, drinking so well right now.
July 19, 2015 - My last bottle of 2012. Delicious! Still drinking really well.
May 3, 2015 - Drinking well. Grapefruit and rocks. Love this wine.
