Greetings from Burgundy

I just wrapped up two spectacular weeks in Champagne, with a stop at another new producer who'll soon be joining the Caveau family. As I mentioned in the last post, these folks make less than 1,000 bottles per year, but what they make is extraordinary. Details as soon as they are available...

I arrived in Burgundy Sunday afternoon, picked up film-maker David Baker at the station in Beaune, and we are off and running. Our first day of filming was a blast - we spent the day with Thiébault Huber at his new winery and tasting room in Meursault, as well as in his decimated vineyards - some of which lost 100% of the crop to the April 27th frost. It is not looking good anywhere here - Chablis was hit with yet another hailstorm over the weekend, Beaujolais too, and Burgundy has been shattered for 2016 in most sectors. It is a sad time here indeed.

We finished off the day with a nice glass of Crémant and the world's best Croque Monsieur at La Dilletante in Beaune, and life is good indeed. Tomorrow, more filming with the magnificent character Thierry Violot-Guillemard in Pommard - action to come!
