Meet your English speaking guide, expert in Champagne Wines 

Today, meet your English speaking guide who is an expert in Champagne Wines. Once you have met your guide, he/she will go over the program and itinerary of your champagne tasting tour with you. Then, board your premium, air conditioned vehicle and begin to make your way to the Champagne vineyard wine producing region.

Arrive in the Champagne producing region

Your small group private tour begins with a drive through the scenic Route du Champagne. It meanders among the vineyards and picturesque villages, offering a charming bucolic landscape. We take you to the Côte des Blancs for a sightseeing of some of the most famous Grandes Maisons de Champagne such as: Bollinger, Gosset, Deutz. En route, the countryside is enameled with beautiful Grand Cru villages like Ay, Hautvillers, Bouzy, Le Mesnil, Verzenay, etc.

Visit Epernay

Located in the heart of the Champagne region, Epernay is internationally known as the “Capital of Champagne”. Epernay’s stunning main street appears like an exhibition of opulent mansions housing the most illustrious Maisons de Champagne: Moët et Chandon, Perrier-Jouet, Mercier, Veuve Clicquot. Not to mention the 100km of tunnels under the pavement!

Visit Hautvillers

On the way to Epernay, we take you to the Marne Valley on a journey through the vineyard to meet with another prestigious figure: Dom Perignon who finalized the process to elaborate Champagne. He highly contributed to the fame of Champagne and is now buried in the church of the former Benedictine Abbey of Hautvillers.

Visit Maison de Champagne Moet et Chandon (or similar).

Founded in 1743 by Claude Möet, it became within 40 years the first international brand in the world. Its history is linked to some famous figures such as The Marquise de Pompadour and Napoleon 1st.

This Champagne is also sold to many important historical events among which King Edwards VII’s coronation, Cannes Film Festival, the 120th anniversary of the Liberty Statue, etc. It is probably nowadays the most famous Champagne brand around the world.

Optional Champagne tasting Lunch at a local domain

The estate dates back to the French revolution and has been photographed since the harvest of 1896. Pierre developed the family vineyard just after the first world war, at the same time becoming a grape broker and Champagne wine merchant. In 1929, Pierre set up his own pressing centre and started to make wine.

In 1947 with his 2 sons Jacques and Jean-Guy he created the brand Champagne Jacquinot et Fils. The family business was set up in the Epernay cellar. Jacques looked after sales and Jean-Guy developed the vineyard which today covers 17 ha and makes wines of the highest quality. Jean-Manuel, Jean-Guy’s son, oneologist in charge of production since 1998 is now running the Estate with the help of François Nicolet, Jacques’s son-in-law.

Here participate in a commented private Champagne wine tasting. Begin with a bit of history of the property followed by a cellar visit. Finally, enjoy a commented tasting of the different range of Champagnes produced by the property.

Tour and Champagne tasting at a local Grand Cru Vineyard

Established from 1912 in Damery, in the heart of the vineyard, close to Epernay, the Champagne House J. de Telmont is one of the last familial Champagne Houses. In heritage of a winegrowers’ family, the House J. de Telmont owns 36 hectares of vineyard located in prestigious villages, where are grown the 3 grape varieties of Champagne: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay.
