July 17, 2020 - I continue to be very impressed with this wine though think it may be a bit over hyped. It has settled a bit since the bottle drunk last year. The color has deepened a shade and the nose is loaded with clay, chalk and spring flowers. Clean and precise. The palate feels Chablis-like without the depth I love about the best from that region. Again, clean and delicious but I just don’t get the fireworks.
May 18, 2020 - Drinking well, very fresh and lively. Intense minerality.
October 27, 2019 - This is terrific. Straw colored. Stony minerality. Precise. Refreshing. Sneaky length. (91)
August 11, 2019 - A bit of a shock after the parade of Chardonnay we have been drinking lately. This really wakes up the senses. Straw colored with a piercing, stony nose that beckons the juicy, mouthwatering wine. There is the clarity of a mountain stream yet very nice persistence. Weightless, refreshing with a lovely mineral complexity. Exciting change of pace. (90)
August 25, 2018 - My first dry Belluard. Sharp acidity, reminiscent of a Chablis, bruised apples, citrus, nectarine, gunpowder, stone.
Very nice but not worth the price tag imho
October 22, 2017 - Delicious bottle.
October 6, 2017 - Light yellow in the glass; the nose has an interesting note on it I'm failing to place right now, but is vaguely reminiscent of plastic (not that sounds enticing, but it's really not bad and I can't think of another word to describe it right now).
Much better today than the Les Alpes I just tried, with that savory aspect I get so frequently from Belluard's wines. Very likable today.
