Domaine Belluard has about half of the Gringet planted in the world. Le Feu, is Dom’s single-vineyard Gringet. He named the vineyard Le Feu (the fire) because of its reddish soils, comprised of clay with a lot of iron, and it sits at 450 meters. Read more
SOIL: Clay with a lot of iron
AGE OF VINES: 10 to 60 years
WINEMAKING: Dom’s cellar practices are as careful and thoughtful as his farming. All fermentations are native and elevage typically occurs in cement or stainless steel. Dom sees great potential in cement eggs for elevage and has invested greatly in them, as he thinks the movement on the lees suits Gringet particularly well.
