AWARDS  |  TASTING NOTES

Effervescent elegance in a glass – our beautifully balanced MCC, the winner of multiple trophies and awards through the years, consistently sells out before the anticipated release of the next vintage.

Sometimes, a celebration is just for two – you and the bottle – for all other special occasions, sharing is essential as long as the MCC is ice cold and the company invaluable.

Bright straw yellow in colour, with extremely fine streams of bubbles that carry wafts of biscuity richness to the nose, nuanced by fresh citrus aromas with hints of grapefruit peel, before the palate is filled with a delightfully vigorous ‘mousse’ – the explosion of bubbles that gives way to fresh lemon and lime flavours balanced by a lemon-cream richness that ends long and flavourful, with a mineral green apple crispness.

Classically served with oysters and caviar, the exuberant effervescence and elegance of this wine makes for an unmatchable food partner, with the effervescence cutting through butter, egg or cream based sauces, while the acidity serves to either clean the palate after subtly flavoured dishes, or compliment the tartness of tomato based offerings. From an English breakfast, to Eggs Benedict, to Sushi or Soup; from Trout to Salmon, or Fowl to Pasta – in short, the food world is your oyster with a bottle of De Grendel MCC Brut. 

Best enjoyed now, since we have done the aging for you – however, should you wish to keep a few bottles, you can expect the acidity to lower after a few years, resulting in a richer, creamier wine with flavours developing away from citrus and towards pear with increased yeasty aromas.
