10% was barrel fermented. Kept on the lees for 8 months. The wine is then bottled and laid down for
36 - 48 months. After the second fermentation the wine is riddled by hand in riddling racks for a period of
3 weeks and then disgorge. The wine will stay on the cork for 9 months before release.
The Cap Classique is handmade while the winemaker keeps a close eye on the wine throughout the
process. No specific recipes are used - the winemaker is only there to guide the wine trough the cellar.
This wine was lovingly finished by hand - in true Bon Courage style.
Fruit driven beautifully poised. Aromas with peace and hints of citrus. Rich creamy flavours with a lively
mousse which awakens the palate. A good combination of fruitiness and yeastiness. Noble Pinot Noir
and Chardonnay grapes provide the ingredients for this classy Cap Classique wine, styled on the classic
Champagne wines. The palate has both intensity and delicacy. Crisp with a lingering finish. Excellent to
enjoy with food, an aperitif or with fresh oysters - a wine for all occasions.
