Dominique Belluard has dedicated the majority of his energy to the Gringet grape, an obscure grape that's native to his corner of eastern Savoie.  There are 22ha of Gringet planted and he owns half of it. For the most part, Gringet is used for indifferent sparkling wines simply crafted for local consumption. But in Belluard's hands, Gringet becomes something truly noteworthy.

Pommard, like Nuits St. Georges and Gevrey, produces dense, fiercely muscular wines. However, with top 1er Crus like Epeneaux, there's no mistaking the grandeur, the complexity and outright breeding that Pommard is capable of. This is particularly true of Comte Armand's Clos des Epeneaux. It's fair to say that, at its best, Comte Armand's Clos des Epeneaux can hit heights that rival Grand Crus.

Château Simone Blanc is very much a wine about texture. There's a wildly complex layering of minerals, herbs, pine resin and various stone fruits, but these are all carried by the wine's regal texture. If you think about some combination of Bordeaux Blanc and Hermitage Blanc you get a sense.

Salvioni nails this understated, aromatically complex style: they are Brunello full of purity and grace. Their Brunellos offer a medley of incense, spice and roses, all beautifully integrated with red fruits and minerals. Needless to say, 2010 played right into Salvioni's hands. Everything points to a legend in the making.

2010 is a vintage where the most dedicated growers really distanced themselves from the pack. Anyone who has visited Gautherot has mentioned how beautifully the vineyards are maintained. When you hear him talk during the interview, it's obvious that his heart is in the vineyard.

The 1er Cru Vaucrains is one of the stars in Chevillon's stable. The eighty-year-old vines produce an especially wild, powerful and emphatically mineral expression of Pinot.

Becker's Rieslings represent some of the most challenging, singular and ultimately compelling expressions of the grape. The fact that old examples are available with perfect provenance and at very fair pricing only sweetens the deal.

These are some of the purest and most beautiful renditions of Hermitage. There is no grander, more regal expression of Syrah than Hermitage. Faurie captures Hermitage's elegance and complexity with such detail and in such an honest fashion.

Bouland's style is deep and muscular with staining intensity. It carries this with an interesting combination of rusticity and flash.  All of this is wrapped around a stern core of granite minerality that boldly announces itself from start to finish.

The marriage between the mineral-laden, very classic 2008 vintage and Fourrier was close to ideal. As you could guess, it reaches a high point in the Clos St. Jacques. Burghound focuses on the, "ultra pure middle weight flavors that possess excellent precision and verve on the driving and wonderfully long and linear finish." That gives you a really good sense of how the wine possesses a laser focus and dancing minerality while not being shy on substance and depth.
