We’ll begin, as usual with Champagne, this time with a wonderful vintage bottling from the awesome Leclerc Briant where Connie and I had an amazing visit in April.

We’ll then repose to an Oysters & Caviar course with a superb Chablis from the famed “Les Clos” vineyard where Louis Moreau and his uncle are the largest landowners.
