|Other||This Méthod Cap Classique was made in the traditional way. The grapes are harvested by hand into bins the morning of 29 January 2015 at 19.5˚B. The grapes are then cooled before it is pressed whole bunch. The free-run juice was allowed to settle overnight at 8°Celsius using pectolytic enzymes. The juice is covered with carbon dioxide blankets to prevent oxidation. The wine is then inoculated, and fermentation took place in stainless steels tanks at a constant temperature of 12°C for approximately 15 days. Second fermentation took place in the bottle where after it was matured on the lees for 60 months.|
|Food Suggestion||Being a rich and complexed MCC it will pair beautiful with exotic seafood dishes such as fish carpaccio, caviar, oysters and sushi. Mariëtte MCC and shellfish with a rich sauce is also a match made in heaven or try it just on its own to celebrate any occasion.|
