Wine Advocate 89 points - The Non-Vintage Bliss Demi Sec has a reduced but quite compelling bouquet. The palate is rounded and lightly honeyed on the entry - far less dry than the name would imply and indeed, there are 39.4 grams per liter residual sugar. It is an attractive MCC, but I must say that I find the name misleading.
As its name implies this bubbly is guaranteed to instill feelings of unadulterated bliss in all of those fortunate to taste this fabulous fizz. A deeply satisfying experience from the first sublime sip to the last tantalizing tingle.
Once again this wine was blended from the two Cap Classique stalwart building blocks: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Whole bunch pressing ensures fractional recovery. After settling of the juice the two varieties are fermented separately. They are then cross-blended along with reserve wine if necessary, bottled and left for 15 months yeast contact time before disgorgement. A special selection of liquer d’expedition was added to produce this delectable demi-sec style of Cap Classique. The perfect bubbly for those who prefer their fizz not too bone dry. Delightfully light yeasty aromas are complemented by hints of butterscotch, honey and praline. This luscious bubbly will stimulate your sweeter senses.
