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.

For me, this is the most fun wine in the world. So bright, engaging and refreshing, with a lick of sweetness and a hint of Alpine minerals. Certainly not frivolous in the making: organic, biodynamic and cork-finished (something I’d like to see in more méthode ancestrale wines).

Beautiful hue somewhere between ruby and salmon. Surprising nose of crushed rocks and green apples and a little strawberry but not the strong floral/berry aromas I was expecting. Satisfying cranberries and lime and a little bubblegum on the palate with a nice arch of acidity, good texture and long sweet-tart finish. This is definitely off-dry and a little too sweet for my taste. Enjoyable drinking but not sure how versatile given all the RS... kind of a picnic or porch wine.

A new-to-me Bugey, imported by the Dressner team, hopefully it's at least as good at the Bottex (K Lynch). Notes to follow...

Decent but not as good as my usual version on this AOC. Seems to be excessively frizante with a light head of foam at the top of our glasses. Color is beautiful, clear ruby, like a early summer raspberry a few days from peak ripening. Nose is tight, mashed strawberry is faint. Palate is refreshing, my standard note of strawberry-raspberry juice stands, but lacking some concentration. Great summer sipper.

More enjoyable, we're sitting on the patio looking at our rock wall and watching the newest version of baby Chipmunks (3) running about, wrestling, drinking water from the low bird bath and enjoying a little snack of bird seeds which my wife provided, she says they can't go hungry...

This is such a fun wine to pour to people. The color stops them in their tracks. And the residual sugar pulls em right in. If you live somewhere that has really warm weather pop this open in the summer. You'll thank me later.

Can't go wrong with Louis/Dressner even with an unfamiliar wine and/or region. A sweet, sparkling rose of Gamay and Poulsard using Methode ancestrale, where producers make a sweet wine and bottle the juice while it is still fermenting. The fermentation continues in the bottle with no additional yeast or dosage resulting in a low alcohol (7.0%) sparkling wine with residual sugar. Medium plus concentration ruby pink. Fruit forward freshly crushed grapes, raspberry coulis. Refreshing, persistent effervescence dissipates quickly on the palate which also features light body, low acid and low heat. Aromas are confirmed on the palate, sweetness is well balanced not syrupy. Perception of sweetness outlasts the fruit on the short finish. Good aperitif or light dessert wine.
