Nestled between Savoie, the Jura, Burgundy, and the Rhône, this small yet mighty appellation is one to explore. Patrick Bottex, along with his wife and son, farm the rocky limestone slopes of Bugey to produce a beautiful sparkling rosé. Predominantly Gamay, this slightly sweet bottling shows bright fruit and refreshing acidity.
Kermit Lynch has dubbed the Quenard’s winemaking “authorities” & we have to agree, as their contribution to the alpine wine region of Savoie is massive. Their bottling of Mondeuse is quite refined, yet holding rustic notes of wild fruit & minerals.
Arbin appellation of the Savoie and enjoys a relatively warm, sunny climate for what is an otherwise alpine terroir. The resulting wines are fuller in body, making for an ideal union between alpine freshness and minerality, along with concentration and complexity. An absolute stunner!
Food friendly, versatile and perfect with a slight chill. They're BBQ All-Stars.
