Colmant Brut Plaisir

This Brut Plaisir from Colmant is made in a fresher, fruitier style. It consists of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay sourced from Franschoek but also the two other best areas for MCC wines in South Africa, Robertson and Elgin. The grapes are chosen for their freshness and fruit forward qualities, then only lightly pressed to extrtact the free run juice. The wine is both lees aged and bottle matured, plus has reserve vintages blended back in - as with traditional Champagne.

Obviously it is fresher and fruitier than their other wines which are more full, rounded and biscuity.

In stock

This blend was made from a selection of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, from the regions of Franschhoek, Elgin and Robertson, choosing the juices which express the most fruity and round characteristics each harvest. A portion of the blend also comes from reserve wines from previous vintages, further contributing to its fruity dimensions. This wine spends a minimum of 12 months on the lees at a constant temperature of 14°C before release.
