JC Le Roux introduces Vibrazio range

on

Ah good ol’ JC Le Roux, a sparkling wine synonymous with NYE parties from my student days. Its customary sweet flavour perfect for youthful undeveloped palates. Need to add some pop to a celebration but don’t have the big bucks to throw around? Then JC is your bubbly bottle of choice. However, things are shifting over at the ‘House of JC Le Roux’ with the recent launch of the premium dry and semi-dry Vibrazio range – just as affordable but with a much more sophisticated finish.

I headed to JC Le Roux and accompanying restaurant Le Venue in Stellenbosch last weekend to test the new range for myself. I sampled the beautifully blush coloured semi-dry Demi-Sec Rosé. Though less overly sweet than previous ranges, it is still pretty fruity and juice-like. That said, it is incredibly easy drinking and went down a treat with our meal at Le Venue. I would recommend those looking for a drier finish to try the Vibrazio Sauvignon Blanc.

Oyster highlights

When bubbles are flowing and you spot oysters on the menu, you can’t say no, so the starter was a no-brainer. My dining partner and I shared a platter of eight. Served with fresh lemon and three accompaniments; basil and lime pesto, an alcohol-free Bloody Mary sauce, and tomato and onion salsa, these fresh, juicy and substantial West Coast oysters were the highlight of the lunch for me.

For mains I chose the honey-glazed pork belly which came with a soy, ginger and La Valleé Rosé reduction, pan-fried asparagus, baby onions, and an apple, cranberry and mayonnaise salad on the side. The pork was sweet and succulent and perfectly complemented by the reduction and salad. The crackling could have been crispier in certain areas, however, on the whole, this was a very satisfying dish.

Alcohol-ly

For dessert we shared the orange and lavender crème brûlée and white chocolate cheesecake. I found the cheesecake a tad soggy and not particularly strong in white chocolate flavour; the creamy and lavender perfumed crème brûlée definitely won the dessert round.

And just when we felt we could hardly add another bite to proceedings, we were presented with JC’s signature frozen lollies created in partnership with Las Paletas artisan lollies. I chose the Berry Blanc which is made with the Vibrazio Sauvignon Blanc, a perfect refreshing end to a pleasant day out in the winelands.
