If you drive northeast from Lyon towards Switzerland, the hills rise higher and higher until they are full-grown Alps. About halfway to the border you are in the mountain-wine region of Bugey. This is well off the "beaten path." The Jura lies to your north and the southern bits of Burgundy just to your northwest. It is here that Isabelle Coiffier and Jeremy Decoster, along with their two children, purchased a small 6-hectare estate, Les Cortis, just a few years ago. Having learned to make natural wine from Alice and Olivier de Moor in Chablis, they knew what they were doing.
