Pinot Gris Maceration Bellevue, Orange wine, natural production, freshness, poise, classic Jerome Bretedeau style in a skin contact wine. Pinot Gris makes fascinating orange wine because of its deep coloured skin. It marries savoury and fruit and is somehow halfway between Rose and Orange wine. With Bellevue, it is of course superb, well balanced, elegant orange wine and great way to discover this style.

Jérôme Bretaudeau's story is one of passion for wine and only wine.

He set up the 9 hectare Domaine in 2005 after working for over 15 years at other estates and converted to organic production in 2009. The soils at Domaine de Bellevue are what give it the capability to make hand crafted terroir wines which truly vary from soil to soil. They are are made up pockets of clay interspersed with silica pebbles, white and pink quartz and also some volcanic rocks allowing strong minerality and complexity for the wines. The vines are old and various with unusual grape varieties for the Muscadet area (Chardonnay, Gamay, Merlot, Pinot Gris and others). He uses a combination of large clay eggs and used barrels to ferment and mature his wines. Internships with Jo Landon and Guy Bossard (two giants of the area) gave him the taste for natural wine making and thus since 2009 he has been certified organic. The wines are elegant, precise characterful.
