Description

This Méthode Cap Classique exhibits a vibrant intensity and revels in elegance and style. On the nose, the MCC shows slight perfume and berry aromas followed by notes of nougat and brioche, while the palate is seductively fresh and focused with lingering mineral tones. The fine and soft mousse gives way to beautiful biscuit, red apple and nutty flavours on the palate, then subtly rounds off with creamy complexity.

Growing Conditions

Grapes were hand harvested in the cool of the morning. The bunches were hand sorted and whole bunch pressed. Only free run juice was used in the final blend to create its delicate taste and originality. No malolactic fermentation was done on the base wines to preserve its crisp style, freshness, clean structure and fruit flavours. After blending and bottling took place, the secondary fermentation commenced in the bottle for four weeks at 15°C, thereafter the MCC was bottle matured on the lees before degorgement.
