Arrival in Champagne...

Just arrived after a painless, no-hassle trip. Fortune was on my side - made my connection with 5 minutes to spare, rental car was ready for me in Paris, the sun is out, the Autoroute was clear, and life is good. I'm no more jet-lagged than usual. Managed to hit the Leclerc supermarket on the outskirts of Épernay and pick up a few supplies, take a shower and put on a clean shirt - it doesn't get any better, all things considered.

They're disgorging a few lots today at Laherte Fréres (I stay in their guest house right next to the winery in Chavot) - Aurélien and his crew are on the line running the '13 Blanc de Blancs - disgorging, dosage, cork, cage & capsule...

It's a gorgeous day in the Vallée de la Marne - the vines are happy, the birds are singing, and I am ready to hit the ground running. .Literally. I'll do an easy 10K tomorrow morning to get my motor running, and then it's off the the cellars, with Marc Chauvet and Laherte on the schedule tomorrow. Plenty o' action to come!
