    Tour and Champagne tasting at Taittinger*

    Located in the great regions of wine-growing Champagne, the Champagne Taittinger vines cover 288 hectares evenly distributed over 34 different vineyards, which include some of the appellation’s finest.

    Located in the great regions of wine-growing Champagne, the Champagne Taittinger vines cover 288 hectares evenly distributed over 34 different vineyards, which include some of the appellation’s finest. With varietals consisting of 50% Pinot Noir, 15% Pinot Meunier and 35% Chardonnay, the Taittinger vineyard is an unsurpassed example of that House’s own style of wine, in which Chardonnay plays such a significant role. The vineyard’s own production is supplemented by contractual acquisition of grapes from independent suppliers operating the finest vineyards in Champagne.

    Your Champagne day experience will start at the Taittinger vineyard and winery in Reims. There, you will discover the centuries-old cellars where one of the finest French champagnes is matured for several years before being consumed. Millions of bottles are resting 18 meters below the ground surface where the perfect temperature of 12° Celsius is achieved, spread along 3km of tunnels. You will also be able to taste and purchase several champagne batches from different years.

    However, a visit to the Taittinger estate is much more than just champagne. Indeed, the estate is also home to the remnants of the Saint Nicaise Abbey, which was built by monks in the 13th century. This takes us back to the religious history of the city of Reims and reminds us that wine making was mainly started by monks in the region. In addition, the Taittinger estate is also home to chalk quarries dating back from the 4th century and the Roman empire. The quarries are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage monument.

    (Visit included: L’Instant Premier with one glass of Champagne)
