IN THE CELLAR

The Brut 1682 Pinot Noir is made in the traditional French method and is designated Méthode Cap Classique. The grapes were hand-picked at low sugar levels of 18.5 - 19°B and pressed whole bunch. The extracted juice is low in phenols, high in natural acidity and has a delicate pink color and fine strawberry flavour. The juice ferments with a strong yeast strain to form the base wine of the MCC. Once the base wine is stabilised, it is fermented a second time in the bottle with a crown cap. This second fermentation creates the bubbles (or mousse) of the MCC. Post fermentation, the wine was aged on its yeast lees for 18 months before first disgorgement in February 2016
