Renardat-Fache Cerdon NV

FranceThe Renardat Fache family has been growing grapes for 8 generations in the tiny sub-alpine region of Bugey, tucked in the scenic foothills of the southern Jura mountains, and at the crossroads of Savoie, Jura, Burgundy, and Rhône wine regions. Their 12.5 hectare property is farmed organically and biodynamically, and rooted in Jurassic limestone and clay soils. Wine from Cerdon, one of Bugey’s three crus, is always sparkling and red / rosé, with a sweetness. This pét-nat is entirely gamay, and pours a deeper crimson rosé hue, with delicate fizz and a definite sweetness. When the native ferment reached 6% it was lightly filtered and then bottled, trapping the remaining sugar, yeast and fizz in the bottle. Candied cherry, raspberry blossoms are riffed with broken stones, and brightened by tart rhubarb acidity, helping to offset the 50 g/L RS remaining. At 8%, this would make a lovely partner to brunch waffles, or berry desserts.Tasted: 15 June 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 33.00 BCLS Producer: Renardat-FacheDistributors: Cru & Terroir
