Laborie has a rich history dating as far back as the seventeenth century. The Tailleferts family left the district of La Bri in the Poitou-Charentes area of France destined for South Africa. The family was granted a farm all the way back in 1691 and the name Laborie was established as an homage to the district they left behind. The estate has been passed to various families over the centuries, but the Laborie name and acclaimed wines have been a mainstay.
Laborie Methode Cap Classique Brut is the result of a harvest season that was anything but ordinary. 2010 saw erratic weather patterns, record rainfall, a brisk winter, and an early budding season. Despite the challenges for the winemakers, the harvest provided a large range of excellent wines. Breathe in the vibrant intensity of the MCC Brut, offering sweet notes of berries with a subtle hint of brioche. The palate is balanced like a fine, textured mousse that leaves one lingering on the long, crisp finish. The MCC Brut pairs particularly well with seafood dishes, or simply enjoy the chilled bubbly in a bountiful glass on its own.
