Alexandra de la Marque 2010 (Methode Cap Classique)
It’s a blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir. The wine underwent alcoholic fermentation in stainless-steel tanks as well as full malolactic fermentation before it was bottled at the end of 2010. It was then bottle-fermented – matured on lees – for five years prior to dégorgement. This extended lengthy bottle fermentation process gives the wine that extra complexity and depth that is adored in a special prestige cuvée. The style of this wine is very much an expression of his passion, purpose and integrity, three words he lives by.
Alexandra was officially launched on February 29, and thereafter the next vintage will only appear every leap year – 2020, 2024 and so on. Ancient tradition has it that this is the only time that women can propose to men. Four years is also the perfect time for MCC to bottle-ferment and reach optimum development.
