Domaine de la Beliere Bugey-Cerdon
Domaine de la Beliere
France - Savoie - Bugey AOC

This pink, semi-dry bubbly was made by spontaneous fermentation, otherwise known as methode ancestrale. This one is so delicious and fun to drink, with a distinctly, grapy aroma and a fruitiness that calls out for celebration and jubilation.

Bugey AOC
Wine Type
95% Gamay, 5% Poulsard (a local grape from Jura).
Soil type
calcareous/siliceous clay
Produced from the 'Ancestral method': low temperature fermentation starting in the tank, light filtration that leaves active yeast in the wine, and bottling of the wine with fermentation continuing in the bottle ('spontaneous fermentation in the bottle'), retaining some sugar (40 gr/liter at the end).

This pink bubbly is excellent as an aperitif and a perfect companion to dessert, especially chocolate cakes.

bti gold 2023"Amber color. Aromas and flavors of cranberry juice, rose petal, cherry and kiwi, and red apple with a round, bright, effervescent, fruity medium-to-full body and a delightful, medium-long finish that shows nuances of cherry, cranberry, beeswax, and rose water. Concentrated fruit flavors, creamy bubbles, and well balanced acidity will make this a splendid pairing with charcuterie."

bti"Reddish amber color. Delicate, fruity, floral aromas and flavors of baked cherries, mulberries, and geranium with a supple, tart, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, interesting, breezy cranberry compote, raspberries, chalk, and nutskin finish with fine, crunchy, fruit tannins. A crisp, refreshing French sparkler."
