  • ageing : The 2009 Villiera Brut Natural  was made without the use of any preservative while maintaining the usual quality standard.  The only condition is that it be consumed within 4 years of release, because maturation will take place at an accelerated rate.

    in the vineyard : This innovative Cap Classique is created for those consumers who are both environmentally aware and health conscious.  Only Chardonnay grapes were used which were sourced exclusively in our own ecologically friendly vineyards. 

    about the harvest: Hand picked grapes were delivered in perfect condition to the cellar where they were gently pressed.  The cuvee underwent  both a natural primary fermentation and a natural malolactic fermentation, after which it evolved on the primary lees for a period of 6 months without the involvement of additives.  Importantly, the addition of sulphur was avoided throughout the entire process.

    in the cellar : After a controlled second fermentation in the bottle, to create the magical sparkle, an extended 3 year period of yeast contact was allowed to ensure maximum development of this exceptional sparkling wine.  The balance and softer style of this Cap Classique made it possible to avoid adding dosage which means it is extra dry and ideal as an aperitif.
