The Must of Champagne – Epernay – Hautvillers

daadmin
16 febbraio 2016

The goal of this tour is for you to discover all the aspects of Champagne: the vineyards and history, a prestigious house of Champagne, a small producer and a commented tasting. Have fun!

Your Licensed English-Speaking Guide will pick you up from your hotel in Paris at 8.00am in a deluxe private vehicle. He is also a Professional Sommelier graduated from the French Wine University. During this tour you will enjoy the advice of a wine expert and share unforgettable moments with him. (Our experienced wine consultant works with top quality wine growers and will teach you the main bases for a Champagne tasting).

Only one hour East of Paris, you will begin your day with a stop in the middle of the vineyards where your guide will explain to you about Terroir, geography and grape varieties. Following this, a private, guided visit to a small and exclusive local wine producer will help you appreciate all the stages of making Champagne wines, from vinification to labelling the bottles. You will be able to taste 3 different Champagnes: a Blanc de Noirs, a Blanc de Blancs and a Rosé de Saignée.

After this first tasting, enjoy the scenery whilst driving along the Champagne wine road to reach the village of Hautvillers, the birthplace of Champagne, where Dom Perignon invented the precious beverage at the end of the 17th century. Enjoy a private visit at the Church of the Benedectine Monastery owned by Moet & Chandon and discover where Dom Perignon is buried.

After the Church, it is now time to have a commented tasting with your sommelier in a unique Champagne bar. The best time for tasting is actually just before lunch! Enjoy a selection of three or six glasses of Champagne in a great atmosphere.

Following this, you will have a gastronomic lunch in a traditional restaurant in Epernay. Because of its strategic geographical situation, Epernay, surrounded by vineyards is known as the Capital of Champagne. In accordance with your wishes, we will make a booking at the best place. Our guide knows all the authentic and local restaurants far from the tourist crowds.

Time for digestion! Following your lunch, you will visit the most prestigious House of Champagne in the world: Moet et Chandon, or similar (we can make arrangements to view other houses following your wishes such as; Ruinart, Veuve Cliquot, Pommery…) and you will discover the opposite of what you saw in the morning: Luxury and Prestige! Enjoy a final tasting in the biggest cellar of Epernay before heading back to Paris in the late afternoon, where you will be dropped off at your hotel around 6.00pm.

A little bit of history, a variety of visits and a tasting in the middle is the perfect recipe for a great one-day tour in Champagne,” Steeve CALVO, Sommelier.

Cellar visits and lunch are not included in our rates; however, these can be paid on the day locally. Personal expenses, tips and gratuities are also not included.

•    Service of a Professional wine expert graduated from the French Wine University
•    Stop in the vineyards and explanations about Terroir
•    Private visit with a local producer

    I had a good stay in Paris. Location : The property was location at good site and parking (Paid) is just outside of the property. but we found it difficult to search the exact house on 3rd floow as nothing was written on the door of property. There are more 4 house on the 3rd floor. Host need to add the house number in the description. Space : Enough space for 3-4 people / family. a good size bedroom and living room. Enough duvets and bed sheets . kitchen was clean with essential items. THe bathroom door glass is bit transparent . That was the only bad part.

    Really nice apartment in beautiful area! On arrival apartment was clean and full of light. Perfect location, just few minutes away from the cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris but not that crowd of tourists that it may suppose to be. Small street marked near there is just perfect to buy something for breakfast. Moscow/Russia-Leo Elkervitch-April 2015

    Очень уютная квартира с шикарным расположением - до Елисейских полей 5 минут, рядом много магазинов и ресторанов, метро в 2 шагах.  Все так как описывалось на сайте.

    The apartment was very good. The location is convenient: metro is 2 minutes away, many bakeries around, as well as shopping. The quarter is calm. If you are in Paris for a short period, you would't loose you time, going from somewhere to the sightseeings. It is already the heart of Paris. Moreover, if you want to stay in authentic...

    The apartment was very good. The location is convenient: metro is 2 minutes away, many bakeries around, as well as shopping. The quarter is calm. If you are in Paris for a short period, you would't loose you time, going from somewhere to the sightseeings. It is already the heart of Paris. Moreover, if you want to stay in authentic french apartment, this is the right place. The apartment has two rooms. For Paris, it is big, especially for the city-center. Inside the apartment were all necessary things that the travellers need: bed-clothes, towels, soap etc. There were even a bottle of vine in the fridge! Nadia was nice and helpful host. She answered very quick to the mails and to all possible questions you have in mind. We definitely recommend this apartment! Karlsruhe, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany, September 2013

    The building is in a great location a few blocks from the center of Champs Élysées and close to Metro, bus and Rails. We took a cab for $35 Euros to the apartment. This was the most direct mode. The apartment was as pictured and very spacious for French standards. It had a shower and bath with good hot water. It was nice having a family room with a pullout couch and TV with American channels. Since I was traveling with my mother, I slept on the sofa bed so she had a private room . The kitchen had a dishwasher, fridge, microwave and oven. Ideal if you have a family or want to eat in sometimes. Also a hotpot and coffee maker. There was several cafes, pastry shops and restaurants as well as a Starbucks within short walking distance. You can walk or take the metro to all the major sites and districts. Versailles was a 30 min train ride. The apartment and furnishings were fine but the rug and the comforter on the bed could use a cleaning. Returning the key when leaving was a breeze as the door locks itself so we just left the key on the counter and went on our way. The apartment was in a great neighborhood but still had a code to for the entryway than a key to the building door and to the apartment door so we felt very safe. also being only one flight up it was good since we had bad knees. The apartment was in the rear so you didn't hear any street noise and it faced s cute courtyard. Since we went in Mid May the weather was in the low to mid 70's so we didn't miss air conditioning. This huge first time I would...
