The Belle Rose is a fruity Méthode Cap Classique which owes its salmon pink colour to the Pinot Noir varietal.
The Pierre Jourdan range was named after the French Huguenot to whom the original Franschoek farm was granted. This wine was given the name of Belle Rose by Takuan von Armin’s grandmother, after seeing the beautiful pink colour with Belle Rose translating to ‘beautiful rose’. Vegan-friendly.
This wine was produced in the traditional French method of bottle fermentation, known in South Africa as ‘Méthode Cap Classique’. A period on the skins allowed for the Pinot Noir juice to extract less colour, resulting in a beautiful salmon pink colour. The wine was matured on the less in bottle for 12 months. Expect a full nose of strawberries and cream, followed by fresh acidity and red fruit on the palate.
