Colmant Brut Tradition MCC Maiden Vintage 86+ Points

NV Colmant Brut Tradition MCC Maiden Vintage 86 + Points

Pale straw with slight yellow peach hue.
Clean, shy, rather austere initially, when warming up, shows slight toasty aromas, freshly baked Golden apple, fine bubbles, burnt citrus medley, yeasty, followed by very good palate weight, yeasty character follows through, adding interest and complexity, structured, with precise acidity, clean, intense, delicate, elegant overall.

With the future release, 2007 harvest with 25 % Reserve wine from the previous vintages most of it matured in wood, expect a more complex, mature and profound Méthode Cap Classique, this is a label to watch closely and should never be left forgotten at any celebration or tasting where quality and benchmark South African wines is the order of the day, keep it up Jean Philippe.

Excellent value, highly recommended, this is a must for any respected wine list
