Les 5 du Vin sparkle in Champagne: some views

Golden tree near Champagne Vilmart in Rilly-la-Montagne
Before our Friday tasting with the remaining members of Les Artisans du Champagne there was a brief 25 minutes or so for us to rush off and try to capture some of that extraordinarily vivid and sharp light of that morning. And capture the remaining but fast disappearing golden leaves from the autumn of 2011.    

View from the base of the Montagne de Reims across to the city

 In the process of grubbing up a parcel (above and below)

 A few burnished leaves but going fast

 Another view towards Reims
A second view of the golden tree
