French sparkling wine maison Luc Belaire debuts its Rosé and Brut Gold in Singapore.
Don’t be too surprised if the next time you’re at the bar and you see the table next to you at the bar popping and pouring some bubbly from an unfamiliar black bottle – that’s Luc Belaire, one of two French sparkling wines just brought in by Bacardi to our shores.
Luc Belaire is a family-owned French winemaker whose maison was first established in 1898, and today its fifth- and sixth-generation father-and-son team continues to produce its two styles of sparkling wines – a Rosé from Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur and a Brut Gold Blanc de Blancs from Burgundy – that exemplifies two of France’s most prestigious winemaking regions.
The Belaire Brut Gold is a refreshing and elegant sparkling wine made in the authentic French blanc de blanc (white of whites) style exclusively from Chardonnay grapes, and provides aromas of white flowers and a fruit-forward flavour profile of citrus and stone fruits such as peach, grapefruit, and lemon. In the mouth, the wine is dry and light, with a crisp finish, making it a perfect aperitif before any meal.
The Belaire Rosé on the other hand is a cuvée produced in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region that is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah grapes: the Grenache provides body, warmth, and hints of blackberry and blackcurrant; the Cinsault adds aromatic cherry blossom on the nose, finesse, and a supple texture to the finish, while Syrah gives a beautiful colour and provides roundness and a toasty richness to the wine.
Luc Belaire’s cuvées – in their signature sleek black bottles – have recently taken the world by storm and are currently in over 75 countries. The Luc Belaire Rosé and Luc Belaire Brut Gold are now available in Singapore at a recommended retail price of S$168 each, and consumers can find them in top retail outlets as well as clubs such as Zouk Trace, Bang Bang and 1-Altitude.
