Pop the champagne, 2018 is almost over and the holiday season is upon us! Arriving just in time for all the festivities and celebrations is the new J.C. le Roux Radiance Collection. Inspired by the beauty and brilliance of all things floral, this new range of bubblies will no doubt add some vibrancy to your holiday season.

For those who love their wine bottles to be as beautiful as their Christmas decor, The J.C. le Roux Radiance Collection features new limited edition designs for the La Chanson, Le Domaine and La Fleurette sparkling wines in the range. Each bottle foil is adorned with a unique floral design — perfect for a summery Christmas in South Africa.

The La Domaine bottle features the Plumeria flower, the La Fleurette with Tulips and the La Chanson with Poppies and each bloom was selected for the way they match the personality and notes of each sparkling wine, bringing an air of celebration and festivity. La Domaine is a delightfully youthful wine with the freshness of a Sauvignon Blanc and the soft sweetness of a Muscadel, whereas La Fleurette is playful and passionately pink in colour. It reveals a perfect balance of sweet, fruity flavours like strawberry, plum and tropical fruit, and a rich Muscat note. Last, but not least, the low-alcohol La Chanson is ruby-red in colour and boasts pleasantly sweet notes of strawberries and plums.

What’s more, J.C. le Roux is continuing the fun with the hashtag #CelebrateYourRadiance as well as the J.C. le Roux Radiance Chatbot on Facebook. Using the hashtag on Facebook will transform your page into a garden blooming with joy while the Chatbot allows you to submit a voice note sharing how you recognise your inner radiance. It will then measure your voice tone and pitch, and provide a custom animation using your profile picture and matching Radiance Collection colour filters. Using the #CelebrateYourRadiance hashtag will also stand you a chance to win a pair of bespoke, floral sneakers!

The J.C. le Roux Radiance Collection retails at around R74.95 per bottle, and is available nationwide until stocks last.
