Wine club bubbles

We had a tasting recently of Champagne and MCC at our wine club, presented by Matthew Krone

We did have Laurent Perrier NV, Mum Cordon Rouge (our favourite) and Veuve Clicquot yellow label, a Prosecco from Italy, a Freixinet Cava from Spain but we just wanted to mention how well the South African MCCs stood up to the foreign competition. Matthew Krone's own 2010 Alexandra earned loud applause. The favourite of the evening was the Steenberg Lady R, very closely followed by the Avondale Armilla. We drank the Kleine Zalze as our welcome drink and it really got the tasting going well

Two of the best annual Bubbly tastings will be happening soon

Wine Concepts’ "Finer Things in Life" Champagne Festival at the Vineyard Hotel on Friday 25th November features only good French Champagnes

The Franschhoek Cap Classique and Champagne Festival ‘The Magic of Bubbles’ will be held over the weekend of the 3rd and 4th of December. We hope to see you there, as we will be at both
