Renardat-Fachet, Cerdon de Bugey 2018
Gamay & Poulsard
Carl van der Merwe
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.
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.
