Corbett's Notes:

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.

What's Cooking?


What do I like to drink?
Madeira would be my desert island wine and although it was an everyday favorite in the colonial era, that may be a bit impractical today. If you’ve never tried Madeira, come talk to me!
I’m a bit of a collector at heart and I’ll try (and likely buy) lots of styles of wine.
I love Chenin Blanc for its stylistic versatility - what’s not to like about a grape that can be made crisp and dry, rich and oxidative with great aging potential, sparkling, or fully sweet. I like my red wines light, high-acid, and low alcohol with a nice chill. Gamay is a go-to red whether I want something simple for the porch, or something a bit more serious for a special dinner. I’m also a huge fan of aromatized wines and think everyone should drink more vermouth.
