The CLASSIC Cuvée is our great classic, produced according to the traditional champenoise method. This famous “Blanc de Blancs” (=White wine from Whites grapes) vintage completes its second fermentation process in the bottle and rests stored for at least nine months in a pile. Its fine bubbles and elegance makes this dry sparkling wine the ideal partner for any intimate moments. At a wine tasting of 79 sparkling wines organized by “La revue Belge des Vins” (The Belgium wine magazine), our CLASSIC Cuvée was awarded the title “love at first sight”! The white CLASSIC Cuvée is available in bottles of 37,5 cl, 75 cl and 150 cl in Brut. Demi-sec and Rosé Brut are available in 75 cl.
Some explanations concerning sparkling wines:
· According to the law in force, a sparkling wine classified as Brut should contain between 0-15 grams of residual sugar per liter. A Demi-sec should contain between 35-50 grams per liter.
· The labeling of “Blanc de Blancs” (=White from Whites) indicates that the (sparkling) wine has been produced from white raisins.
