Patrick Bottex Bugey-Cerdon 'La Cueille' NV
Ideally located between Savoie, Burgundy, and the Jura, Bugey is one of France’s most unique and interesting grape-growing havens. Bottex’s one-of-a-kind méthode ancestrale sparkling is comprised of 80% Gamay / 20% Poulsard, grown on high-altitude slopes on clay-limestone soils. Chuggable, low-alcohol, and delightfully refreshing, you will want to wash down your pumpkin pie with this!
The reference point for greatness; the fount of most wine-specific vocabulary; and the nation most identified with viticulture and winemaking expertise. As awesome as Italy but a little snootier.
