Just delicious! I’ve had great luck w/Savoie wines and this was no different: pours extremely dark, inky, opaque, brooding taking its time to unfurl black & red fruit w/depth, earthy w/a hi tone note along with licorice and forest floor. Big mouth filling broad across palate, gobs of fruit but all fit into sturdy tannic frame. Well cut - a Country Squire — 14 days ago

Bottex was the first Bugey Cerdon that I ever tasted. 8% ABV, juicy tart red fruit, slight RS, ancient method bubbles. What’s not too like. — 2 days ago

Jonquille Vieilles Vignes Terroir d'Ayze Gringet 2019

Complacent and shy, with bits of distinction. Needs a little time and brain juice to find the hidden quirks. The dill, the sour cream, the spearmint. Quiet entrances. Surrounded by a more familiar crew. Lemon zest, crisp pear, tangerine, and black pepper. — 25 days ago

Renardat-Fâche

Cerdon Bugey Sparkling Rosé Poulsard Gamay 2017

Absolutely lovely. Forgot about this bottle in a not temp controlled cabinet for a few years and the wine’s better than when I bought it. On the sweet side but it’s gained complexity and certainly has the acid to balance. — 18 days ago
