Ready to rock in Champagne

The first of three groups of customers that will be joining me for tours arrives tomorrow, and I've spent the last couple of days buttoning up all the last minute stuff, and we're ready to hit it and hit it hard. Of course there's a train strike scheduled for tomorrow, but it appears not to affect the TGV from Paris, so we'll keep our fingers crossed...

To warm up for our the non-stop hedonism, stopped in to one of my favorite places on the planet, Au Bon Manger in Reims. There may not be a better cheese and charcuterie joint anywhere, and a stellar curated selection of Organic and Biodynamic Grower Champagnes...

My heart bleeds for everybody in Chablis, some 500 hectares (about 1,200 acres) were hit by a severe hailstorm over the weekend - coming on top of the massive April 27th frost that killed 60-80% of the crop in much of the appellation, It is a BRUTAL time for the Chablisiens...

Here in Champagne spring in general has been cold and wet - we're all hoping for warmer temps, as things in the vineyards are definitely behind at this point.

Tomorrow we'll be tasting at Laherte Frères, always one of the best days of the year. Action to come, mes amis...
