Cru du BugeyCerdon is a small appellation between Savoie and Jura. It is a sparkling rosé wine with a low alcohol content (8 °C / vol). It is made from Gamay and Poulsard grapes using the ancestral method.
The ancestral method is a fermentation technique that allows the production of sparkling wines without the need to add yeast or sugars. Fermentation occurs naturally with the grape's own sugars and yeasts.
To obtain this beautiful rosé colour and its fine bubbles, temperatures are controlled at all times during the vinification process. The first phase takes place in a thermo-regulated vat to start the fermentation process. After a light filtration, the wine is bottled where it continues to ferment, thus giving birth to the bubbles and the foam.
The Cerdon has made more than one person succumb to the cellar, its fine pink bubbles, its slight sweetness in the mouth that makes it so greedy.
