Cap Classique Jacques Bruére Blanc de Blancs 2011, Bon Courage Estate

£17.95 per bottle

About this wine

The Bon Courage Cap Classique Jacques Bruére Blanc de Blancs 2011 has hints of fresh lime and citrus, complimented by a subtle yeastiness on the nose.  The palate shows great finesse on the finish with a crisp, rich and creamy complexity. The Jacques Bruére 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.

Ageing potential: Made to be enjoyed now or within 3-5 years.

Food pairing: Best served as an aperitif or with oysters and the ideal partner to a seafood platter. Also great with sushi and lime-flavoured Thai dishes.

Tim Atkin MW Special South Africa Report: 94 points/Best Value Sparkling Wine of the Year “Bon Courage’s bubblies are not as well known outside South Africa as they deserve to be. This appealingly mature, bone-dry Chardonnay has very fine bubbles and layers of dried mushroom, citrus and patisserie. Long, detailed, complex and refreshing. 2020-23”

From crisp, flinty Chablis styles to full-bodied, oaky, rich Napa Valley Chardonnay it is a variety which has the ability to morph according to the climate or winemaking philosophy. It also has the capacity to produce amongst the greatest white wines in the world. Some praise indeed for this chameleon variety, the likes of which may only truly be matched by Riesling or Chenin Blanc."
