If you are a fan of Old World bubbly, this should definitely be in your fridge. It comes from Bugey, which is a cool wine growing area in Eastern France with viticultural origins predating the Romans. Yves Duport runs this small operation with his family, and makes fantastic wines. The “Origin’L Reserve” has zesty minerality with flavors of stone fruit and baked apples, and a touch of toast from 12 months on the lees. It’s very clean, crisp and refreshing. For now, Bugey doesn’t quite command the prices other famous bubbly regions do, making it a killer value.
