2012 Bon Courage Jacques Bruére Cap Classique Rosé Brut

Bon Courage Wine Estate

Robertson

This range is named in honour of the Bruwer’s French Huguenot lineage, the Brueres, who hailed from the Loire Valley. They are handmade from beginning to end in accordance with the traditional “Champagne” method.

Full rich yeasty flavours with hints of raspberry. Silky rich on the palate filled with red berries and balanced with subtle mineral undertones, soft mousse and lingering finish.


Vinification

The base wine was kept on the lees for 8 months initially during the first fermentation. The "magic of the bubbles" begins during the 2nd fermentation that occurs in the bottle, thereby extending maturation on the lees for 84 months. After disgorgement and dosage the final product is left on the cork and then released.


Recommendation

To be enjoyed on its own or with seafood based canapes. Truly versatile and can be served with oysters, salmon, tuna, prosciutto, sushi, Asian style dishes, rich cheese and red berry dessert.
