This is a great dinner party wine. Very enjoyable. Should be served with dessert, maybe some strawberry shortcake. Good acidity balances out the sweetness.

Soft red fruits, good acidity on the attack. Soft mid palette. No secondary fermentation so some residual sugar, not too sweet though. Drunk as part of a 12 course tasting menu at WD50. Paired with chocolate genache, avocado, licorice and lime, then caraway raspberry crunch.

Don't know if this is the same Bugey Cerdon that I tried, as the label is vastly different, but if it is, here's what I wrote about it: A bit unremarkable on the nose, but at first taste, it was delightfully sweet, with definite notes of raspberry/blackberry. The finish was a nice contrast - quite dry and crisp. It's simple, but pleasant and very palatable.

Very sweet, but enjoyable, like the certain bubbly person that you don't really admire, but is fun, and sometimes necessary, to have around. Thick bubbles and well balanced fruit, with just the right acidity.

Lucky Ive learned a few things in the last 15 months. I cant believe i ever wrote "no secondary fermentation" for a sparkling wine... How did I think the bubbles got in there? Pink / salmon hue. Floral, delicate nose. Very acidic, balances the residual sugar well. Its pretty sweet (4%+). Very tasty. Good with pear tatin or something similar... summer fruits and cream maybe.

A "pretty" wine. Had first at Thanksgiving, then New Years. On the sweeter side, but I really enjoyed it. Can drink alone or with any meal. New favorite splurge.

Wine Tasting NotesThe Perfect Wine For Summer! Cerdon du Bugey tastes its best the year following the vintage. Served cold, the refreshing effervescense and delightful berry flavors make Cerdon the perfect aperitif! Alternatively, Cerdon can be served with fruit-based and chocolate desserts. The varietals are many, borrowed from all the surrounding areas: Gamay, Poulsard (a grape from Northern Jura), Roussette, Mondeuse (both from Savoie) and Chardonnay. This area continues to produce still wines, but the region's star is the Cerdon Methode Ancestrale, a semi-dry, pink bubbly made by spontaneous, but incomplete, fermentation.

"Pink rose petal to the eye. On the nose a just a hint of strawberries. Tastes of fresh raspberries and red apples on the palate; certainly sweet on the palate, but its vibrant and lively acidity keeps it from cloying. Its effervescence gives it a festive mood. How can anyone pass on a glass of this? Perfect with anything you might serve on Thanksgiving--or any time that you are entertaining!" Jason Palma; Wine Consultant

This delicious pink, semi-sweet wine raises the standard of this style of wine.

The Bugey-halfway between Lyons & Geneva is one of the smallest and obscure wine areas in France with only 170 hectares. Gamay is the most prominent grape for this light sparkler.

Demi-sec, sparkling rosé from one of France's great winemakers. It shows remarkable purity of flavor and perfect balance of sweetness and lightness.
