Saturday, 29 to Sunday, 30 November, Huguenot Monument, Franschhoek
Pull out all the stops and make the signature J.C. Le Roux Méthode Cap Classique, Scintilla 2008, your first toast at the Franschhoek “Magic of Bubbles” Cap Classique and Champagne Festival, held from Saturday, 29 to Sunday, 30 November on the lawns of the Huguenot Monument.
The luxuriously smooth and well-balanced Scintilla 2008, a gold medallist at this year’s International Wine & Spirit Competition, spent a minimum of five years on the lees to develop its rich complexity. A classic blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, it evokes an air of elegance, beauty and sophistication, representing one of life’s finer pleasures.
The Franschhoek “Magic of Bubbles” Cap Classique and Champagne Festival will showcase the entire range of J.C. Le Roux Cap Classiques amongst the line-up of Cape Classiques and Champagne, from the golden-hued, palate pleasing demi-sec, J.C. Le Roux La Vallée and its blushing alter ego, La Vallée Rosé, to the ultra-elegant prestige cuvée, Scintilla.
Each J.C. Le Roux Cap Classique is crafted in the time honoured French tradition whereby the delicate bubbles are created and captured in every bottle during a process of secondary fermentation. South African bubblies made this way are known as Méthode Cap Classique, as only the French version may be called champagne.
Tickets to the festival are available from www.webtickets.co.za at R200 per person. Visit www.franschhoekmcc.co.za for more information.
