Black Marble Hill Cap Classique 2016
This blanc de blanc oozes complexity. Layer upon layer of different flavours and aromatics, from primary fruity aromatics to wonderful secondary biscuity autolytic characters, are quite prominent due to the extended time the wine spends on the lees. The wine has retained a lovely fizz and just enough sweetness to complete the wine and fill the palate.
Awarded TOP 10 (91 Points) at the Prescient Cap Classique Report 2021.
