    three crus within the appellation of Bugey and the only one whose entire production consists of sparkling wine In La Cueille one of seven high altitude hamlets surrounding the historic medieval town of Ponsin Patrick and Catherine Bottex are farming the limestone slopes above the Ain River They have been working five hectares of land since 1991 and produce only a small quantity of their beautiful intriguing sparkling wine As a former part of the Duchy of Burgundy it stands to reason that several Burgundian grape varietals have found a home here not the least of which is Gamay The Bottex s blend consists of ninety percent Gamay and ten percent of the native Poulsard They bottle this low alcohol wine using the méthode ancestrale a rare technique that experts believe predates the méthode champenoise The wine first goes through a primary fermentation in cuve but is then bottled before all of the residual sugar has converted to alcohol After going through a secondary fermentation in the bottle for at least two months the wine is ready Champagne s dosage is not permitted The resulting wine is delightfully refreshing with bright fruit a beautiful rosé hue and a touch of sweetness Kermit had never heard of Bugey until Marcel Lapierre uncorked a beauty at one of his after tasting parties His best memory of drinking it however was from an ice chest at a hamburger barbecue on a beach in Hawaii From Bugey to Waimanolo Technical Information Wine Blend Vine Age Soil Type Vineyard Area Vin du Bugey Cerdon La Cueille 80 Gamay 20 Poulsard Planted between 1960 and 2010 Clay Limestone 5 66 ha ha hectares one hectare equals roughly two and a half acres VITICULTURE VINIFICATION Grapes are harvested by hand Fermentation is natural The wine is bottled
