Looking back on this year, we can say Genevieve MCC has made new friends and rekindled with old ones. We’ve taken part in some memorable events that have been successful and got some lovely new listings that make us proud when we see someone ordering a bottle for the table!
We introduced the new vintage: Genevieve MCC 2011 at the Franschhoek Bubbly Festival this past month.I have patiently been waiting for this and am proud to say we’re releasing it with a maturation of 3 years on the lees. The slightly longer aging shows up beautifully and hints of honeycomb alongside the customarily fresh notes mingle well together.
All the best for the festive season, travel safe and enjoy the time with loved ones!
Melissa Genevieve Nelsen
