It’s a lovely day in Franschhoek. I’ve been invited to the Colmant Cap Classique and Champagne launch which turns out to be a yuppie gathering of beautiful people.
Jean-Philippe and Isabelle Colmant couldn’t have prayed for a better day to launch their “bubblies” – the sun is out which makes for ber sunglasses and petit sundresses. Perfect weather to showcase their “loyal party buddies”. Great MCC and sun – what a combo!
Colmant Brut Tradition and Ros are on tap (I have coupons) and so is one serving of oysters. But the oysters are served from a tent on this warm day and do not come with complimentary Imodium, so I skip. Everyone else seems to be slurping away regardless
Instead, I have my oysters at Bouillabaisse in Franschhoek’s main road. Prawns and oysters Livin’ La Vida Loca-style. Seksie perfeksie. They are opening a shop at De Waterkant in Cape Town soon. Can’t wait.
Meanwhile I will be buying my Colmant Brut to re-enact this perfect day. It retails for R115 ex-cellar.
