Marné Brut Méthode Cap Classique
My dearest daughter, Marné
Perfectly nurtured Pinot Noir & Chardonnay grapes were picked on your birthday for our first MCC in 2007. It is only fitting that this MCC is named after you. Your vibrant personality is as sparkling as the contents of this bottle. Just as the Marne river runs through the bubbly producing area in France, your joie de vivre flows through our family, enriching our lives in so many special ways.
Delicate yeasty tones, layered with apple, citrus and brioche. A persistent bead makes this MCC particularly attractive, enlivened by a firm, well integrated mousse. A foamy mouth-feel with toasty notes and a crisp green apple freshness.
Our Méthode Cap Classique is made in the classic French tradition and is a blend of 51% Pinot Noir which imparts distinctive body, flavour and maturity, and 49% Chardonnay for a clean flintiness. After whole bunch pressing with minimal skin contact, the clear grape juice was left to settle before it was pumped into steel tanks for cold fermentation. After the first fermentation and malolactic fermentation, the wine was prepared for secondary fermentation in the bottle. The wine was left on the lees for approximately 20 months before the sediment was removed in the traditional process of remuage and dégorgement. The bottles were then corked and laid down in a cool cellar for a further 5 months.
