Made with the Gamay noir grape, the 2018 Ancestral is deliciously delicate, with ripe raspberry & rhubarb on the nose and palate. Reflective of the warm vintage, the Gamay came in at a higher pH resulting in a slightly sweeter Ancestral & an lovely elegant pale pink colour. It is the most like Bugey-Cerdon we've ever made.
Named for the original way of making sparkling wine, the Ancestral is produced using similar techniques first employed by the monks of Saint-Hillaire abbey in 1531. The carbon dioxide is captured during the primary fermentation producing a lightly sparkling, off-dry, delightfully fruit-forward wine.
