Simonsig Cuvee Chene Cap Classique 2000

80% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir Whole bunch pressed chardonnay and pinot noir. Chardonnay was fermented in older French oak barriques and left on primary lees for 9 months. Pinot noir brings red grape fullness to the cuv?e. Four years on the lees before degorgement gave the wine ample time to develop further complexity. 66 cases of this wine were sold at the 2003 auction. Tasting note: Lemony chardonnay followed by roasted almond nuttiness. A refreshing entry on the palate shows freshly baked bread flavours and subtle oak taastiness. The finish is clean and the sophisticated dryness lingers on the finish. A complex food style wine.
