Tim Atkin Report: 93 points

A Prestige cuvee, produced whenever conditions favour the production of fine sparkling wine. The name is a family name which the Griers are proud to associate with their flagship. This Cap Classique is made with maturation potential in mind.

about the harvest: 2013 was a relatively cool year. The vineyards were healthy and ripening occurred late. Healthy grapes were picked by hand and delivered to the cellar in whole bunch form.

in the cellar : Whole bunches were carefully deposited into pneumatic bag presses and gently pressed using a champagne pressing cycle. Only the cuvee (best quality juice) was used in the blend. Part of the Chardonnay (half) was fermented in used oak barrels for extra complexity. After blending with Pinot Noir, yeast and sugar were added for a secondary fermentation in the bottle, followed by extended lees contact of 6 years.
