The House of J.C. Le Roux offers a delicious, elegant MCC in the form of its Scintilla 2003. Only produced in exceptional vintages, the sparkling wine is smooth and well-balanced with a dry palate. It’s a classic blend of 75% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Noir, and the wine spent seven years on the lees which has resulted in rich, complex layers
“This outstanding signature J.C. Le Roux Cap Classique has a brilliant golden colour, displaying a rich fruitiness on the nose with integrated baked bread flavours, and will benefit from additional bottle maturation,” says cellarmaster Elunda Basson, who recommends enjoying this stylish wine with juicy braised Karoo lamb shank or tantalising salmon bruschetta. J.C. Le Roux Scintilla 2003 is available at boutique wine shops and restaurants, selling for R150 at the cellar door. For more information, visit www.jcleroux.co.za.
