Cerdon Ancestral Method Bugey appellations with AOC status Cerdon Ancestral Method
Cultivated on steeply inclined slopes, with ideal exposure to capture the sun’s rays. The soil is clay limestone.
Gamay and Poulsard
Partial low-temperature fermentation in vats creates a sweet wine with low alcohol content. Once filtered, the wine is clear and retains its yeast, continuing to ferment naturally in the bottle.
The ancestral method as required in the appellation’s specifications means the foam forms in the bottle in the most natural way possible, without any yeast or sugar additives.

This fact, along with the wine’s quality, means it is appreciated around the world.
