My step-mom is remarrying this month. Her super-sweet betrothed popped into the shop last weekend to find something delicious and festive for their wedding night. My mom rarely drinks (and it is the cutest thing when she does) and her tastes lean sweet so I suggested Bugey Cerdon, one of my favorite semi sweet sparking wines.
Marjorie and Bernard Rondeau craft this delicious wine of 100% Gamay in the Bugey appellation just south of Jura and west of Savoie in eastern France. Bright cherry and fresh strawberry notes are a highlight of this wine with lovely floral notes on the nose. Frothy, soft bubbles are thanks to fermentation via Methode Ancestrale (one fermentation started in tank and finished in bottle). I love this wine as an accompaniment to mid-day snacks like a good charcuterie board, or with a light, not too sweet dessert.
Get on board with sweet wines, they are delicious and versatile.
