Genevieve MCC end of year 2016 news

Hope your year has made memories worth celebrating and you’re ready to get 2017 on the go!! After the holidays!

A quick note if you need to stock up last minute!:

Then some end of year news of what we’ve been up to in 2016:
We’ve had a busy one, exports growing now to Belgium and Germany with reorders to the Netherlands and Germany, Genevieve MCC is slowing being able to touch others peoples celebrations and the love for Méthode Cap Classique around the world.

A couple of highlights this year have been the purchasing of a property in Bot River, after quite some time searching for the right spot to create a home for Genevieve MCC we’ve found one, it’ll be a slow progress of renovations and planting vineyards but we’d love you to be part of it and will keep you updated when we’ve moved there and can all get together and celebrate!

The 2012 Genevieve MCC was released earlier this year and whenever I sit and taste and make tasting notes, my vintages become a character, the 2012 is my soldier, it stands up right, expresses itself very cleanly, has great structure and is showing the integrity that it was made with. With 4 years on the lees, it’s still vibrant and is going to mature beautifully for those that manage to hide some away for a few years.

Then the other highlight was being able to release a Zero Dosage vintage this year. 2012 was an exceptional harvest for me and with the first press juice coming in, decided to set some aside and see how it would evolve with even less intervention, adding no sugar after second fermentation and left on the lees for 4 years and then some decent cork time.It’s a little rock star!

Zero dosage Champagnes/Méthode Cap Classiques are referred to by some winemakers as “a champagne without make up.” It is where we get to truly taste the wine.

Comparing the two gives you an idea of the influence of dosage on MCC. The absence of dosage allows the fundamental qualities of the wine and its terroir to shine through more clearly.

All the best for your festive season and cheers to you and may we ching our glasses together often in 2017!
