Le Lude Cap Classique

Le Lude Cap Classique

the art of making “bubbles” in the heart of Franschhoek South Africa.

At Le Lude, portions of MCC are fermented and aged under both cork and crown-cap.
Wine-maker Paul Gerber is a pioneer in fermentation of Cap Classique on cork.
According to Paul, this process – Agarfé – leads to a more complex and unique development of flavours and mouth-feel. “The main reason for this is the difference in the rate of exchange of gases that takes place when the bottle is closed with a cork for the secondary fermentation and aging compared with crown-cap,” he says. “It leads to a wine with a unique character, and in Champagne some of the houses such as Bollinger, Krug and Tattinger still use it.”
