Tasting Notes:

Our pale pink 1682 Pinot Noir Méthode Cap Classique is fresh with fruity aromas of raspberry jelly, wild strawberry sorbet, red apple skin, and toasted brioche. The wine has a very fine mouse that lifts the raspberry-like aromas and is balanced well with a creamy texture and bright acidity and has long lingering dry finish.

The Brut 1682 Pinot Noir is made in the traditional French method and is as such designated Methode Cap Classique. 

Harvest Date: January 2017.

The grapes were picked by hand 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 flavours. The juice ferments with a strong strain yeast to form the base wine of the MCC. Once the base wine is stabilized, 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 a minimum of 10 months before first disgorgement in April 2018.
