The wines of Yann Pernuit (Les Vins de Belema)
A winemaker experienced in the natural wines of Savoie
Yann Pernuit is a winemaker who already has a lot of experience in the vinification of natural wines in Savoie. He worked for many years at Château de Mérande, and then he worked with the late Dominique Belluard at Ayse in Savoie.
The launch of Belema Wines
In 2019, Yann creates Les Vins de BELEMA and starts his first vinifications with grapes bought in the area while working at Dominique Belluard. The first wines tasted are straight, precise, salivating!
Planting of vines in Ayse
Following the tragic death of Dominique Belluard, Yann has redoubled his efforts to plant vines in Ayse in Haute-Savoie in order to be economically viable as soon as possible. We obviously find local grape varieties that are sometimes forgotten, notablyEtraire de la Dhuy, but also Altesse, Mondeuse and, of course, the famous Gringet, which expresses itself so brilliantly among the limestone scree of the Mont Blanc valley....
We know and appreciate Yann's work because we went to see him at Belluard and at Château de Mérande. A meticulous worker, in love with nature and biodynamics.
