WineScores' Review

The Renardat-Fache family has been growing grapes for eight generations in the tiny sub-alpine region of Bugey, tucked in the scenic foothills of the southern Jura mountains at the crossroads of Savoie, Jura, Burgundy and Rhone wine regions. Their 12.5 hectare farm is both organically and biodynamically, with multiple high-density vineyards and varied exposures on Jurassic limestone and clay soils.
Wine from Cerdon, one of Bugey's three crus (which include Belley and Montagnieu) is a fruit forward sparkling rose with only 8% alcohol.
It is produced from Gamay sometimes with the regional red grape Poulsard and is made in a traditional techniques Methode Ancestrale (also known as Petillant Naturel or Pet Nat). The method utilizes a fermentation technique that makes it possible to obtain a sparkling wine without the addition of any yeast nor sugar. The fermentation process is natural, and uses only the yeasts and sugars contained in the grapes.
It has a sweet chalky character and notes of juicy cherries, blueberry, raspberry, honey and wet bricks. It's a sweety of a fizz with charming peachy, pomegranate and blueberry flavours. Delicious and frothy.

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.
