#EVENT: Cap Classique x J.C. Le Roux Scintilla

Recently, the Cap Classique Champagne Festival hit the grass in Franschhoek right next to the beautiful Franschhoek Monument. With a backdrop of a mountain ranges, greenery and probably some of the cleanest air you’ll ever smell, it was the perfect Saturday to be sipping on champagne and sparkling wines.

My treatment was undoubtedly the best, compliments of the House of J.C. Le Roux. Earlier in the week preceding the champagne festival, I received a special package from the brand with my prize, after winning the competition to attend the festival as their guest.

The box, gold and textured, was filled with a bottle of the signature bubbles, Scintilla, a watch, key chain, and bottle stopper. My grin, ear to ear, was uncontrollable and totally shared with everyone who was around to witness the unveiling of the gift.

On the Saturday of the festival we got cracking, sorted out outfits and got ourselves, rather fashionably late, to the venue in Franschhoek. Upon arrival we were handed a pay card for tastings, a glass, and great positive vibes. The J.C. Le Roux space felt like a sublime VIP space. We had a bottle of chilled Scintilla waiting for us and we were ready to pop it.

In true champers drinking style, J.C. Le Roux Scintilla deserves nothing but the best complements; and what better than oysters to ensure the liquid bubbles, dry and fruity, flow frivolously through the beautiful sunny afternoon in Franschhoek.

A tasting at the House of J.C. Le Roux is in order and on the cards and I definitely won’t be missing the Cap Classique 2015.
