The Must of Champagne – Epernay – Hautvillers

Published on Tuesday February 16th, 2016 by admin

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.

    Great flat! Great location, very clean, very cute. Really close to the metro stop (just around the corner). I stayed by myself and didn't feel unsafe at any point. Nadia is responsive and very accommodating. Overall, a perfect place to stay in Paris. Highly recommended ! Baltimore, Maryland, United States, September 2013

    I stayed recently at this with my mother and sister for four nights. The flat is was very comfortable, had all modern updates and was beautifully furnished and decorated. The beds were very comfortable and the flat was immaculately clean. Nadia communicated very promptly with me and although she was not available when we arrived another host met us and gave us a tour of the place. The flat is in an excellent neighborhood in Paris and is very close to so many of Paris's main attractions. The only downside of this flat was that it was quite noisy at night because it is on a very lively street. Loved the location and the design of the flat. And the great pull out couch! It might be good to have a fan for people to use in the summer. I would definitely recommend this flat - is one of the most comfortable ones I have stayed in. Thanks Nadia! July 2015, Marina from VANCOUVER CANADA

    The apartment was clean and had all the amenities that we were looking for. There's free wifi which works really well and the apartment was clean when we received it. I guess Paris is an expensive city. I was expecting something much larger. Since I was traveling with my mom, I wanted it to be uber comfortable and relaxing. This is a good place if you are not planning to spend any time in the apartment. The bedroom is really just a loft space and the bathroom is alongside the kitchen and not in the bed area. I was hoping for something just a bit more spacious for the rate. The shower area could use a separator of some sorts because water does flow out to the basin and toilette area which can be frustrating and hard to keep the place dry. I can't forget to mention that the apartment is in a fantastic area in the 5th arrondissement and super close to the Metro - Jussieu. There's a great Cafe (St Victor) just footsteps from the apartment and also the famous Boulangerie - Eric Kayser is a couple blocks away on Rue Monge. We loved the area and loved walking around there. It's safe and convenient. San Mateo, California, United States

    The surrounding of the apartment is very quite. And the location is quite amazing cuz it takes little time to walk to the Champs Elysees and the entrances of metro line 1. We enjoyed the time living there. BTW, the actual looking of the apartment is much better than in the photos. January 2014 Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China

    Apartment on 5th floor with a lift in the great locality of Marais in paris. A bit old but comfortable. Great heating and great water heating as well. Kitchen a bit small for those who may want to cook but this didn't bother us as we ate out. No washer so if you're staying longer keep this in mind. Laundromats...

Kitchen a bit small for those who may want to cook but this didn't bother us as we ate out. No washer so if you're staying longer keep this in mind. Laundromats available in the area though. No television either. Floor boards creak and in parts paint etc chipped off nothing major. Beds were comfortable and in all we had a great stay. Location unbeatable and metro close by.
