Luc Belaire Rare Rosé is the 1st of 3 bottles by Luc Belaire I will be writing about, so why not kick things off with their flagship drink, which also happens to be very good indeed.

Without a shadow of a doubt Luc Belaire Rare Rosé is a delicious sparkling Rosé. I remember writing an Amazon product review on it a while back & in that review I mentioned how I have barely scratched the surface with all the different types of sparkling Rosé out there, but I have had a few in my time and this one is by far the best tasting.

If you’re into rap, hip-hop & R’n’B, I suspect you would have seen this bottle floating about, either in somebody’s hands or casually resting on a fine piece of mahogany and/or super car, yacht, jet.. you get the idea. As far as I’m aware, the rapper Rick Ross endorses Luc Belaire, along with a few other well known musicians. Therefore, as soon as I saw this sleek, black bottle, I simply had to give it a try.

Like all great brands/products, they always have a good back story. Whether that be from an age old process, to decades of hard work, perhaps an accidental discovery of something new, etc. Luc Belaire is no different in this instance. The companies Maison (official house) was established in 1898 with 6th generation winemakers overseeing the production of each bottle. Their Rose is sourced from grapes grown in the heart of Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur, which is renowned for the worlds most famous Rosé wine making region & their Luxe & Gold Cuvee’s are from 100% pressed Chardonnay grapes in Burgundy, which, again, is a world famous and celebrated wine territory. Now, I don’t know about you, but that’s already something to be impressed by & would surely suggest their products are something to write home about, or, write a blog about.. yes, this is me trying to be funny.

I shared my initial bottle of Luc Belaire Rare Rosé with my primary school friend Faisal. He was more than aware of the brand and where the bottles were appearing (music videos), so when I turned up one night to meet him, I casually brought out Luc Belaire’s Rare Rosé as if it was a bottle of Coke & I was met with a gasp, as if I had just pulled out a Diamond the size of my hand. The bottle was chilled for at least an hour before we had opened it & when Faisal did the honours, the Rosé had such a beautiful colour to it. It suggested a strawberry flavour immediately, so I was keen to have a taste without haste. Also, without trying to sound strange, the amount of bubbles floating from the bottom to the top was extraordinary. It exuded class/premium quality & when we tasted it, we were in a moment of bliss. The smell was also wondrous & gave me that warm, summer feeling I always cherish.

Usually with a lot of different types of alcohol, the day after doesn’t feel great. In fact, it’s what a lot of people end up dreading prior/when consuming. That alone can be enough to put people off from trying/experimenting with different types of alcoholic beverages. However, in Luc Belaire’s case (excuse the pun), there was nothing to fear. I woke up the next morning as fresh as a daisy & I am not lying. There has clearly been a lot of past/present effort put into making such a vibrant, pleasant sparkling Rosé by using only the best ingredients.

Since I bought Luc Belaire’s Rare Rosé, I bought it again a handful of times since & shared the moment with multiple people, with all of them saying the same thing, ‘‘this is the best Rosé I’ve ever had’’. This is not a paid advertisement and I’m not working with Luc Belaire & perhaps you’re thinking I should & maybe one day I will, but until then, nothing stops this drink from being such an enjoyable experience to have either for yourself, with your friends & family, or simply at a party to give your guests something special they will remember. A bottle as mysterious as this does not go unnoticed & there’s a reason for that, because when you open it & taste what’s inside, you’ll understand why they go hand-in-hand.
