Bon Courage Cap Classique Jacques Bruere Brut Reserve 2007

The Cap Classique is handmade while 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 trough the cellar. This wine was lovingly finished by hand - in true Bon Courage style.

Fruit driven beautifully poised. Aromas with peach and hints of citrus. Rich creamy flavours with a lively mousse which awakens the palate. A good combination of fruitiness and yeastiness. Noble Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes provide the ingredients for this classy Cap Classique wine, styled on the classic Champagne wines. 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.
