  • Epernay: Mercier Champagne Cellar Visit with Tastings

    1. Epernay: Mercier Champagne Cellar Visit with Tastings

    In 1871 Eugène Mercier began the pioneering project of constructing wine cellars: “Count by kilometers and not by meters,” he indicated to the architects. A few years later, 18 kilometers of impressive underground tunnels were created with an incredible cellar that now offers visitors the opportunity to experience an inspiring discovery. Come along and discover the Maison Mercier onboard a little train to travel across the cellars. Enjoy the audio tour followed by a tasting of two champagnes, the Mercier Brut and Mercier Brut Blanc de Noirs, with commentary. Possible tour languages include French, English, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch, Japanese, Chinese, Portuguese and Russian.

    Visite guidée orientée prioritairement sur l'histoire de la maison Mercier et moins sur le champagne et la vigne en général. Bien pour une découverte et 1ère approche

  • From Paris: Small-Group Moët & Chandon Champagne Tour

    7. From Paris: Small-Group Moët & Chandon Champagne Tour

    The only place in the world that is able to grow and produce Champagne is located just outside Paris. On this full-day (11-hour) excursion you’ll also learn about the history of Champagne master Dom Perignon. Visit the quaint chapel and grave site of Dom Perignon, the father of Champagne and then meet with a local producer to learn about the growing process. Enjoy a fully guided tour at the House of Moët and Chandon, the world’s largest producers of Champagne. Take a walk through part of their 40 kilometers of cellars. Before heading back to Paris you’ll also visit the beautiful Cathedral of Reims and have free time to explore inside where all of the French Kings were crowned. During the day you’ll have the opportunity to taste at least 4 different types of Champagne and even pick up some bottles for souvenirs if you’d like. They can accompany you back to Paris in the van.

    I love the way the tour was organized- the first visit to the family vineyard with an in depth explanation & then the tour of Moët and Chandon as a review guide. The only complaint we had was the guide recommended a restaurant and only gave us 45 minutes for lunch. We had to severely rush even though we requested more time from the guide (she gave us 10 minutes). All this so we could walk across the parking lot to Moët and Chandon in order to arrive 10 minutes early and then wait another 10-15 minutes.
