"I met with Jean-Philippe Colmant and Paul Gerber (formerly of Le Lude) to taste through the range of Méthode Cap Classique and experience the philosophy of Colmant's winemaking practices. Jean-Philippe Colmant is making some of the most expressive sparkling wines in South Africa, with his Absolu bottling the pinnacle of the range. Colmant wines are made in a diverse range of price points and quality levels. Fran Kysela, who is Colmant's U.S. importer, says he has future plans to bring in a small quantity of Colmant's Absolu for keen American consumers. - Anthony Mueller"
