The maiden Elation Méthode Cap Classique is an exquisitely crafted blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Classified ‘Brut Nature’, the wine contains only natural residual sugar and is delightfully crisp with a generous dash of exuberance and an elegant touch of finesse. Pour a glass and watch the tiny beads perform a lively cabaret. Then take a sniff … the gentlest aromas of lemon blossom and dried apple emerge, followed by wild strawberry and hints of fresh brioche. On the palate well-integrated flavours of grapefruit and dried apple are accompanied by fresh minerality – elusively savoury like wet pebbles on a beach. An utter joy to the senses, the Elation MCC is the perfect way to celebrate with family and friends over the coming Festive Season.
