Maeve's Pick This wine is as festive as they come! Pink, bubbly, and softly sweet, I always keep a bottle (or two!) in my fridge to kick things off.
One morning I showed up to taste at Marcel Lapierre’s. Strewn around the cave, the parking lot, the dining room were empty bottles of Bugey-Cerdon. Party wine for the Gang of Four!
Here is a freshly bottled, fizzy, low-alcohol rosé that’s fun. Momentum is gathering as jaded palates discover the pleasures of Bugey-Cerdon.
|Blend:||80% Gamay, 20% Poulsard|
|Appellation:||Vin du Bugey|
|Vineyard:||Planted between 1960 and 2010 , 5.66 ha|
Let the brett nerds retire into protective bubbles, and whenever they thirst for wine it can be passed in to them through a sterile filter. Those of us on the outside can continue to enjoy complex, natural, living wines.
