Roussette de Bugey wine appellation
Wine appellation
Country: France

Roussette de Bugey is a VDQS wine appellation in the Ain département of the Jura region of France which lies about half way between Lyon and Geneva. It is therefore natural to expect that the vineyards display influences of both Burgundy and the Savoie.
There are two sub-regions that can be added to the labels of wines from this area namely Montagnieu and Virieu le Grand.
From 2008 wines that are labelled as Roussette de Bugey must be 100% Altesse.
