Fifth anniversary Cocktail Party at Franck Provost Double Bay
Franck Provost Paris Hair is France's number one salon and last night the Double Bay Salon was celebrating its 5th Anniversary. Amber Renae, the Franck Provost brand ambassador, VIP's, members of the French Trade Commission and Alliance Francaise, bloggers, journalists, fashionistas and just about every French person living in Sydney was there! So French, so chic!!
Domaine de la Croix, Irrésistible Rosé - The name says it all! A delicious rosé from one of the top producers in Provence.
Château de la Bouyere Bordeaux Blanc - A great value for money crisp white wine for the coming summer months.
Château des Saurs, La Constance, 2009 - One of our best sellers is this lovely lighter style red from Gaillac in South West France. Silver Medal winner.
We also offered tastings of some of our best sellers:
Château Jolys Jurançon Sec 2011 - a delicious dry white wine awarded 92 points and voted 'Best Import' by Huon Hooke in the Sydney Morning Herald in June 2013.
Château Haut Peyrous, Retours de Palombieres, 2008 - a sensational Merlot/Cabernet/Petit Verdot blend from an organic producer (Marc Darroze) in Graves (Bordeaux).
Chateau de Saurs, Moelleux, 2011 - A late harvest wine made from an ancient variety in Gaillac. Silver medal winner at the Paris 2012 Concours General Agricole.
All of these wines, I am happy to say, were a hit with Francophiles and French people alike.
There was a real buzz in the air as the glamorous models displayed the Summer 2013 (Hair Style) Collection - long soft curled tresses seem to be the hairstyle of the moment - pity I've got short hair!
