Domaine Balivet Bugey-Cerdon Rosé, Savoie, France

  • Farming: Organic
  • Winemaker: Vincent Balivet
  • Varieties: Gamay 95% Poulsard 5%
  • Vineyards/History: The Balivets farm organically in the village of Mérignat, on the south-facing stony slopes above the Ain River in the appellation of Cerdon, a sub-appellation within Bugey, a tiny appellation north-east of Lyon at the foothills of the French Alps. 
  • Vinification: Unlike the méthode champenoise, wines made by méthode ancestrale do not receive a dosage. Rather, they undergo primary fermentation until the alcohol level reaches roughly 6% and are then bottled. In bottle, the wine continues to ferment, but stops naturally at 8%, with a pleasant level of residual sugar remaining.
