MMC stands for Moûts Mutés au Cognac. In essence it is a wine must that has been married to Cognac. The Cognac is added to stop the ongoing fermentation process, with the must usually at about 2% alc., leaving sugars that will ennoble the product over time in oak barrels. It is a traditional and regional product, prepared by most wine growers in the region and often consumed within the family itself. Some of these sweet wines are kept for decades.
MMC Cuvee 1 is a very fresh and fruity wine. It comes from one renowned winery located in the village of Breville, who accepted to yield us this batch after the death of the owner. In Jean Grosperrin cellars, this batch was aged in casks which held the MMC 2, thus providing a delicate rancio to this fruity wine.
On the nose it is fruity and complex. The palate is very soft, not too sweet. Nice acidity and balance.
