“J.C. le Roux Methode Cap Classique Brut is made of predominantly Pinot noir and a small percentage of Chardonnay grapes which are hand-picked from vineyards cooled by maritime breezes selected for their overall quality and suitability. This Brut Cap Classique is a fresher and lighter style of MCC and will be enjoyed by people with a drier palate that prefer it to be young and refreshing.
This is a refreshing Cap Classique that suits all palates. With its light yeasty tones and powerful Pinot Noir flavours, this stylish MCC complements any occasion. J.C. Le Roux Brut is a unique Méthode Cap Classique, for those who prefer the elegance of a MCC with just a hint of youthfulness. Aromas of fresh granny smith apples, peach and overtones of freshly baked biscuits, and a creamy, yet fresh, mouth-feel. It is a wonderful wine for all occasions, remaining crisp and refreshing on the palate with youthful overtones.
This is a great foil for zesty Thai chicken curry and the perfect partner for a traditional brandy pudding.
The story of Jean le Roux traces back to 1704, when the French Huguenots fled to the Cape, South Africa. As soon as Mr le Roux arrived from Normandy and settled in Stellenbosch, he decided to plant 8000 vines. We’re sure the Mediterranean climate and fertile soil must have reminded him of the home he had left behind. Today, the J.C. Le Roux range of sparkling wines are still stellar examples of the great influence Mr le Roux had. The range includes this lovely J.C. Le Roux Le Domaine Sparkling Wine.
