Bon Courage Cap Classique Jacques Bruere Brut Reserve 2004

The Cap Classique is handmade whilst the winemaker keeps a close eye on the wine throughout the process. No specific recipes are used – the winemaker is only there to guide the wine through the cellar. This wine was lovingly finished by hand – in true Bon Courage style. Fruit driven beautifully poised. Aromas of peach with hints of citrus. Massive mousse in the mouth with some buttery and toasty nuances with a pleasant leesiness.The palate has both intensity and delicacy. Crisp with a lingering finish.

Excellent to enjoy with food, an aperitif or with fresh oysters. Indeed a wine for all occasions.
