GREAT NIGHT FOR BECK’S CUVÉE
Clive is Graham Beck’s most exclusive Cap Classique yet. It represents the very pinnacle of their specialised craft and is testimony to their reputation as a world class producer of Méthode Champenoise style wines.
This prestige cuvée embodies the Graham Beck pursuit of the perfect bubble and it really shows. This is a complex, balanced, powerful, yet elegant cap classique with ripe citrus aromas supported by apricot, apple and toasted almond nuances.
The palate starts off with flavours of fresh and zesty citrus, developing into richer, fleshy yellow stonefruit and nutty notes. The piercing acidity, complex texture and delightfully small bubbles create a taste experience which leaves the palate begging for more.
The exclusive MCC is available at good bottle stores and winecellar.co.za
It sells for R750 to R850.
