It's always great to see the greatest vineyards in Burgundy starting to bloom … it's been a challenging growing season so far in this legendary wine region, with devastating spring frosts decimating large parts of the crop and delaying flowering across the region. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
However, there is still a long way to go for the growing season – although the vines are fashionably late, some warm June weather has given them some encouragement and, although undoubtedly much reduced, there is no reason at this point why the 2021 crop cannot shape up to be a great quality one.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Now, over the summer, we cross our fingers and wait …⁠⁠

Is there any better way to start the weekend than with a glass of fizz?⁠⁠
⁠⁠
In the Chelsea Vintners office we have been sipping the VV26 from @champagnefrerejeanfreres – a delicious bottle from a fascinating producer!⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Frerejean Freres are, as the French speakers amongst you may already have guess, brothers; Guillaume, Richard and Rodolphe Frerejean-Taittinger, who founded their Champagne house in 2005 and have been stars on the rise ever since. As well as some serious family credentials in Champagne – we're sure you can guess who! – the brothers also descend from a long line of French cannon makers who originally made their living supplying French forces during the Napoleonic wars.
⁠⁠
Today, family life is a little more gentle, although a pair of cannons can still be seen on the house crest. Despite being a relatively young outfit, FJF are blazing quite the trail with their portfolio of Grand Cru and Premier Cru wines grown on some of the best land in the Cote des Blancs. Not only are they the official Champagne of the Michelin awards, but they are featured in some of the world's most sensational restaurants from Atelier Crenn in San Francisco to @guysavoy in Paris. Perhaps most importantly, they are also the new house pour at one of our favourite hotspots, @trinityclapham!⁠⁠
⁠⁠
A luxurious ending to a glorious week – cheers to many more!⁠⁠

Crowned the World's Best Blended Whisky at the 2013, 2016, 2017 and 2019 World Whisky Awards, the Hibiki 21 is simply one of those drams that every whisky lover must try before they die. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Such immense success and popularity mean that this bottle is now notoriously hard to acquire, but for those lucky few who have the chance to experience Hibiki 21, it is a truly an experience never to be forgotten. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Regarded by whisky lovers as a work of pure genius, Hibiki 21 is legendary for its complexity and extraordinarily perfumed nose, offering dried fruit and sandalwood with hints of heather, smoke, honey, lavender and brine. Layers of citrus fruit and baking spice on the palate, with beautifully honeyed stone fruit, more sandalwood, toffee, oiled mahogany and a glorious final flourish of apricot and butterscotch.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Triumphant in every way – and a true testament to the exceptional quality of elite Japanese whiskies.⁠⁠ 🥃
