The wine appellation Bugey-Cerdon is located in the Jura region which is near the Savoie close to the foothills of the French Alps. Balivet's version is a blend of Gamay, Poulsard and other local varieties. It has a very light garnet color, with a delightful fruity demi-sec character and a charming sparkle all the way through. Cerdon is one of three vineyards located in the Bugey appellation of the southern Jura.
Vineyards here are very steep and face southeast with free-draining soils.
A charming ever-so-slightly pale red (dark rose), ever-so-slightly sweet sparkling wine that has grape and berry-scented aromas with earthy notes. Pair with fruit based desserts, chocolate or enjoy as an aperitif.
