Description

Never heard of Cerdon de Bugey? Nor had we! Just 160ha are under vine. Biodynamically family-farmed Gamay & Poulsard are grown on steep limestone and marly slopes. Try this low alcohol, off-dry, PetNat, vegan compatible, pink fizzer lightly chilled as an aperitif. Spiked with a tasty Summer Pudding flavours. A MUST TRY.

  • Delivery Information

The grapes are picked by hand, pressed and fermented in cold vats until the alcohol reaches about 6 degrees. After a light filtration that leaves most of the active yeast in the unfinished wine, it is bottled and continues its fermentation in the bottle, reaching about 7.5 or 8 degrees of alcohol and retaining a fair quantity of its original sugar.

Alain Renardat is a respected vigneron in Cerdon, and was a long-time supplier of Alain Chapel's restaurant in the Dombes. The Dombes, which, like the Bugey, is in the Ain department, is an area of ponds and marshes, known for its fish and small birds. Alain Chapel, who died several years ago, was a chef beloved among chefs, and famous for his love of wine and winemakers. A vigneron selected by Chapel was guaranteed to have great personality and wines. And while the restaurant is now closed after a long run under the helm of Chapel's widow and sons, the winemakers he'd bring together annually to treat them to dinner remain great friends.
