Brut Bugey Montagnieu White Blend

Late brunch with these Bugey bubbles on a rainy Saturday afternoon was pretty fantastic. 👌🥂

This sparkling wine was made using the Méthode Traditionnelle which notably involves a second fermentation in the bottle and aging on the “lees” for at least 12 months. 🕰

In essence, “lees” are what remain in the fermentation vessel after the active yeast has consumed the sugar in the pre-fermented grape juice during the fermentation process; when they die they undergo a process called autolysis, which is responsible for releasing unique flavor/aromatic compounds and enhancing richness and complexity of the resulting wine. The more contact a wine has with the “lees” the greater the “lees” influence the resulting wine. 🤓

This wine comes from the cru of Montagnieu in the alpine appellation of Bugey within Savoie France, situated in the foothills of the Jura mountains. It is a blend of the Altesse (local), Mondeuse (local), and Chardonnay (international) grape varieties. 🇫🇷

I loved the complexity of aromas and flavors with notes of sweet herbs, watercress, a funkiness of cheese rind, also baked apple, pear, brioche, honeysuckle, peony, and toasted almond. 💕💕

This wine was smooth and dry on the palate with medium(+) acidity, a medium body, and medium alcohol. 👄

We paired it with an aged cheddar, chive, and arugula omelet and it was deliciously complementary.

Giac' Potes Gamay - Mondeuse Blend 2019

Dan R

Gamay / Mondeuse from Savoie. Had one of their whites some time back, wanted to try their reds, quite glad I did. This is brilliant. Fleshy, juicy, really nicely extracted with great mouth presence . Despite the fruity density this has a lively core. Gamay fruit on the attack and Mondeuse spice on the finish. Complex and long. Just really gratifying and easy to like. The fruit / spice / weight / vibrancy balance here is special. Electric. Love it. — a month ago

Thanks @Daniel M , these are definitely worth the search. You’re somewhere near Toulouse, right? My local shop in Bordeaux (Clos des Millésimes) carries it, and they ship, but I’m sure you can get some closer to you. Ça vaudra le coup…Cheers!
