ABSA Top Ten French Fizzes: #1


Le Mesnil Sublime 2005.  Vintage French Fizz for R450 and the Rand at R13.50 to the Euro does not make any kind of financial sense.  This is a price mismark on an epic scale and Debi van Flymen (below) was the best pourer last night by a country mile.

Krug has Clos du Mesnil and you can’t get much grander than that, except perhaps Salon and they have a Le Mesnil too. So if you drink labels, plan to entertain wine snobs or believe in sighted wine guides like Platter, this is the bubbly for you. After a few glasses, I composed the following ditty for Debi:

Fly me to Mesnil
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars

In other words, hold my hand
In other words, baby
kiss me

Fill my glass with dora
and let me sip for evermore
you are all I long for
all I worship and adore

In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you

—– instrumental break —-

fill my heart with dora
let me sip for evermore
you are all I long for
all I worship and adore

In other words, please be true!!!
In other words, in other words
I love…
You

The plan is to ask host ABSA to bring Diana Krall out to Summerplace next year to perform my composition.
