Domaine Rondeau, Bugey Cerdon, Méthode Ancestrale Savoie, France MV (750mL)

“Cerdon is a sparkling wine from Bugey, a lost region somewhere between Jura and Savoie. While the appellation produces still whites and reds, it is most known for this low alcohol, ancestrale-style sparkling wine. The perfect afternoon sipping wine!”

So Cerdon de Bugey is sparkling, but how does it differ from other sparkling wines? In short, Cerdon is relatively sweet and is always pink. Its white wine equivalents are perhaps Clairette de Die or Moscato d'Asti, and its red comparisons are perhaps Brachetto d'Acqui or Lambrusco. Cerdon, however, is normally made with either pure Gamay or a combination of Gamay and Poulsard grapes. At Domaine Rondeau, the Cerdon is made in the méthode ancestrale with 100% Gamay that is harvested by hand at optimum maturity. Cerdon de Bugey, like most rosé wine, is best consumed in its first year of release; it is not a wine that one lays down. We just loaded up on a fresh new batch from the importer. Lovers of seriously made Lambrusco and Moscato d’Asti will want to stock this by the case!
