Sparkle, Celebrate, Scintilla

Sparkle, Celebrate, Scintilla

I’m counting down the days to celebration season! And, what better way to bid au revoir to 2013 and bonjour to 2014, than with a glass make that a bottle of 2003 Scintilla, J.C Le Roux’s award winning bubbly, created in the signature Cap Classique style (Méthode Cap Classique). So, although Scintilla is not technically “champagne” – since anything that isn’t made in Champagne France can’t really be called champagne – the production process of J.C Le Roux’s Méthode Cap Classique’s follows the same style that the French folk use when the make Champagne. In other words Scintilla, it’s not simply carbonated wine. It sparkling personality is earned, through years and years of perfection in a bottle! It’s amazing! Totally delicious, classy and ultra-sophisticated! Scintilla is made with a blend of 75%Chardonnay and 35% Pinot Noir. The two wines have spent seven years on the lees, which is the result of Scintilla’s smooth character, complex flavour and superior taste. Class my dears, class! My preference in bubbly is usually on the sweeter side! But, when it comes to the real deal (Champagne or  Méthode Cap Classique for example), then I prefer it a little more crisp with a dry palette that is well balanced. I will defs be celebrating the…

Pink Bubbly La Fleurette

Pink Bubbly La Fleurette

/ My Outfit: Sunglasses: Prada, Denim Shirt: Edgars, Floral Pants: Forever New, Black Tee: Cotton On J.C Le Roux sent me a bottle of their new Non-Alcoholic bubbly, La Fleurette, just in time for spring! Together with a fun press pack, they challenged me to create a post that would express the floral and fabulous tones of La Fleurette Non-Alcoholic. The stakes are high! As in Louboutin heels high! After popping the cork, I poured myself a glass of La Fleurette Non-Alcoholic. Sitting in my kitchen, I tried to come up with something exciting. Something unique and fun that would not only excite me and the peeps at J.C Le Roux, but also my fabulous StyleScoop readers too. I found myself staring right at the answer… my mixer! September also marks the month of StyleScoop’s fifth Blogoversary and I had been wanting to bake a birthday cake. What better opportunity? So I went with a rose inspired cake and used La Fleurette Non-Alcoholic in the ingredients. After doing some research, I discovered that “Fleurette” means “an ornament resembling a flower”, so my cake idea blossomed into a cupcake bouquet. This was really fun and easy to do. I got some tips on how to make a cupcake bouquet…

Nougat & Wine Pairing at The House of JC Le Roux

Nougat & Wine Pairing at The House of JC Le Roux

Forget good food and wine, nougat and wine is so much better! When you just happen to be in Cape Town, whether you live there or you’re just visiting, you absolutely have to take a drive to Stellenbosch and visit the House of J.C. Le Roux to indulge in their Nougat & Wine pairing. I’ve been “wine tasting” before in Cape Town, but this was a completely different atmosphere. The set up is uber luxe and indulgent from the moment you walk in. Beautiful decor, a quick 5 minute tour through the winery (to see how it’s made without the boring tour guide shpiel) and then onto the wine tasting! Bring on the bubbly! You get your own table that’s set up with five fabulous wines and a guide (ours was the very knowledgeable Simon Dicks) who explains the different wines to you. It’s not so much a lesson, but rather of an interesting story behind the bottle and how it’s made. With the Nougat & Wine pairing, you get to sample five wines, each one matched to compliment a type of Nougat. First up; Pinoit Noir, Pinot Noir Rosé  and La Vallée Rosé. These three wines are Méthode Cap Classique wines, which means…

Number one champagne in the world? Yes please!

Number one champagne in the world? Yes please!

I was lucky enough to attend the Armand de Brignac tasting last week. I was super excited: number one champagne in the world?  Yes please! In the Fine Champage 2009 blind-tasting Armand de Brignac beat the usual suspects (Dom Perignon, Cristal, etc) and came out in first place.  Fine Champage Editor-in-Chief Pekka Nuikki had this to say, “Our highest rating went to Armand de Brignac: a fine, smooth and creamy champagne with underlying power and great mineral freshness. The panel praised the wine for its
