Community Tasting Notes 5

    August 24, 2018 - From a bottle opened very late last night - I brought it to a wine dinner, where it was decided (in retrospect, correctly) that it really wouldn't pair with any of the courses. After the dinner, I returned home with one of my fellow revelers and we pulled the cork while waiting for his Uber to arrive ;^)

    Light bronze in the glass; savory notes on the nose.

    Crisp & dry on the palate, with good acidity for lift and nice persistence. I love Belluard's wines, and while I tend to drink more of his Gringet, his Altesse is another grape that shouldn't be missed. This would be a great match for a simple seafood crudo dressed in olive oil.

    April 10, 2018 - Superbe acidité, mineral, belle longueur, arômes de poire et d’amandes. Magnifique !!!

    March 24, 2018 - Excellent vin, au nez poire-pêche et en bouche belle acidité et minéralité qui donne envie d'y revenir.

    June 13, 2017 - Gold/bronze in the glass, with a nose that reminds me of ripe apple, with a cider edge to it.

    Full-bodied for a white; good acidity, nice finish. Very interesting - would be cool to try this as a blind white.

    March 25, 2017 - Golden-colored in the glass; ripe apple fruit on the nose.

    Medium- to full-bodied for a white, notable acidity, good persistence (I am still tasting the wine as I type this). I frequently use this descriptor when I drink wines from either the Jura or Savoie, but there is a savory aspect to this wine that is very appealing. This is the 3rd 2015 I have tried from Belluard (the first two being the Le Feu and Les Alpes), and I've enjoyed them all, so obviously a decent vintage for Belluard.

    While I will concede these wines are probably too unique/differentiated to charm everyone, given the quality he manages to put in the bottle, Belluard does deserve a wider audience.
