FoodSuggest This stylish MCC will compliment any occasion.

Never a fast process, developing our Methodé Cap Classique was no exception to the rule. Secondary fermentation leads to the buildup of pressure and infusion of bubbles into the wine, making this a stunning, naturally bottle fermented, matured on lees MCC.

Vinification: Crush and destalk, 14 days fermentation and secondary fermentation in the bottle
Maturation: Kept on the lees for 16 months for a fuller mouth feel, complexity and stable bubbles


The Chardonnay grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness for a MCC, a little higher in acidity and not overripe to preserve the natural acidity and have a low alcohol.
