Le Lude Cap Classique
the art of making “bubbles” in the heart of Franschhoek South Africa.
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.”
