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 wine­cel­

It sells for R750 to R850.
