Renardat-Fache Cerdon du Bugey NV
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.
Many people talked about this like it was Real special .... Hmmmm I don't 'see it'. Nice, is what I can give it
