The palate is clean with moderate acid and a flavor set of mountain minerals, citrus, stone fruits with a floral lift. D&M Tasting Notes 

50% Mondeuse/50% Altesse + Chardonnay. Méthode champenoise. Though not vintage-dated, it is always single-vintage. Most Montagnieu sparkling is mainly Chardonnay; Peillot emphasizes local varieties Altesse & Mondeuse. Average vine age is around 30 years, with some plots of Altesse and Mondeuse up to 60 years old.

The Bugey is a small viticultural area whose fame doesn’t extend much farther than the city of Lyon, where its sparkling Cerdon and Montagnieu have long been staples in bistros.

Located in the eastern part of the Ain department, which is better known for its poulet de Bresse (the only French poultry with its own AOC) and its freshwater fish, the Bugey is a series of low altitude hills forming the most southern tip of the Jura range. In distance, it is closer to Savoie than to viticultural Jura, so, if mentioned at all, it is often considered a part of Savoie. Importer Notes
