AOC Bugey Wines

#Bugey #Vineyards&Discoveries #HarmonyWithTheLand
The discreet, little-known, but warm-hearted, residents of Bugey are proud of their history, traditions, and most of all, their land. They have an understanding with the soil: here, they give blood, sweat and tears to the vine on even the steepest of hillsides. And the vine gives back in return, producing wines full of character: reds, whites, rosés, still wines and bubblies.

Generations of know-how and diverse terrain for quality wine

Bugey’s 500 hectares of vines cover a diverse, contrasting landscape, yet its three production areas – from Cerdon to the banks of the Rhône – complement each other beautifully, producing a wide range of wines with something to please every palate.

  • The Chardonnay and Roussette du Bugey are supple, round white wines with a fruity flavour;
  • Reds such as the light and fragrant Gamay, the earthy and ethereal Pinot Noir, and the Mondeuse, a fruity and bright wine, will delight those looking for less complex wines;
  • Rosés go down nicely during the summer months;
  • The delicate and elegant Montagnieu is a sparkling white produced using traditional methods;
  • And last but certainly not least: Cerdon Wine. An incredibly easy-drinking, low-alcohol, sparkling wine which is produced by the méthode ancestrale, an ancestral process of making bubbly wine. Described by wine connoisseur Jon Bonné as “the happiest wine on Earth”, it is sure to tantalise your taste buds!
