Aristea Method Cap Classique Blanc 2015
This prestige cuvée Méthode Cap Classique (MCC) sparkling-wine is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. The grapes were carefully selected for best quality and hand-picked in the cool early hours of the morning.
A slow and gentle whole-bunch press was done on the grapes and only the first press fraction (cuvée) / best juice was used from each batch. Blended and bottled in 2015, our Aristea MCC undergoes a lengthy secondary bottle fermentation and maturation period of a minimum of 3 years on the lees before disgorgement. This wine is classically styled with a soft and lasting elegant complexity.
The extended secondary fermentation also adds beautiful depth to the nose, delivering a quintessential biscuity bouquet, whilst on the palate it also displays a fine mousse with tight and persistent lingering bubbles of great finesse and subtle aromas. This all leads to a mouth-wateringly refreshing finish with great ageing potential.
