Brut Classique NV
Chardonnay, Pinot Noir
Fine bead and string of pearl bubbles. Aromas of tarte tartin, apple and cinnamon with a light pear drop and biscuit nuance. Bright vivacious and crisply zesty in the mouth. Tangy lime and green apple crunch with a richer, deeper, biscuit and sourdough undertone. The zingy citrus and creamy lees flavours are well balanced with acidity and fruit in complete harmony. Poised and elegant with a lingering aftertaste.

Following in the steps of the French and their Méthode Champenoise we follow the same fundamentals of two fermentations and making wine from the traditional Champagne varietals of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir.
To achieve quality and consistency, most wines are Non-Vintage, and the base wine is a blend of several vintages. In exceptional years, a portion of the best wine may be used to make a Vintage Cap Classique wine.
Méthode Cap Classique consists of using a still, dry base wine, either blended with different vintages or varieties. A mixture of sugar and yeast is then added to the bottle and sealed. A second fermentation takes place in the bottle, producing carbon dioxide which is then dissolved into the wine, forming the bubbles so prized in Cap Classique. Slow fermentation occurs in the bottle, during which the lees (residual yeast) flavours the wine in a very particular way. The lees are collected in the neck of the bottle and once ageing is complete is removed in a process called disgorgement (the method differs from wine to wine). The bottle is then topped up with a mixture of wine and sugar (dosage) and sealed. The amount of sugar also differs from wine to wine, the term ‘Brut’ denoting only a small amount of sugar added so the varietals might display their natural characteristics.
