Savoie - Bugey
The Bugey represents a very small region, east of Lyon, whose best known wines are Cerdon, Montagnieu and Belley. Chardonnay and Poulsard also go into the composition of these fresh and mineral wines.
Savoy wines are made from grape varieties adapted to the continental and mountainous climate. The region is the wettest in France and the sunshine is low, the vines are on slopes on scree and moraines. Long known for their low quality, things are changing here too. Maturity is sought after to offer wines richer in fruit while retaining a mineral and refreshing identity.
3 Appellations with 23 grape varieties are mainly spread over Savoie, Haute Savoie, a little Ain and Isère.
The whites, mostly Jacquère, Bergeron, Roussette, Gringet and Chasselas, and the reds of Gamay, Mondeuse or Pinot Noir are light, fruity and sometimes marked by the minerality due to the granitic soils. We also find rosés, sparkling wines.
The Bugey represents a very small region east of Lyon in a mountainous area with a climate identical to that of the wine-growing Savoie, whose best known wines are the Cerdon, sparkling rosé, the Montagnieu and the Belley.
