Black Elephant NV Méthode Cap Classique Sparkling (Franschhoek)

Made from 75% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Noir, this spends 12 months on its lees and then 16 months in bottle before release. It's surprisingly brisk and precise in character, with laser-beam notes of lime and green apple that are coupled with richer tones of rose petal and peach pit. The palate is zippy, with a full but aggressive mousse, high acidity and a mouthwatering finish. Lauren Buzzeo
