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.

Highlights of the tour include:
•    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
•    Commented wine tasting in a Champagne bar with a sommelier
•    Private transportation in deluxe air‐conditioned mini‐vans
•    Photo‐stops at your convenience

    This flat worked out perfectly for our 3 night stay. Nadia was an amazing host!! Some of our luggage was lost and she served as an intermediary with the airline and helped make it possible to get our bag back on a timely basis. This flat is on the top floor and I was amazed how quiet it was for sleeping at night. I have been other places in Paris where the street noise was very disruptive though the night. The flat was just as described and met all our needs during our stay. I would definitely return!! Mason, Ohio, United States

    Die Penthouse-Wohnung im 12. Arrondissement war für uns perfekt gelegen - die Metro ist 5 Minuten entfernt, ein Bäcker ist sehr nah, ebenso ein Monoprix. Diverse Restaurants sind in Laufweite.

Die Nachbarschaft haben wir als sehr angenehm empfunden. Wir fühlten uns sehr sicher und wohl. Wir waren mit unseren 9-jährigen Kindern hier und haben auch die fantastische Dachterrasse bei wunderbarem Wetter sehr genossen. Die Wohnung ist sehr gemütlich mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. Nachts war es ruhig. Die Betten sind französische Betten - das war für uns etwas ungewohnt, aber letztlich hat es super geklappt. Wir wurden sehr sehr freundlich begrüßt und uns erwarteten Getränke, Milch und eine Flasche Wein im Kühlschrank. Alles in allem ein super Aufenthalt. Vielen Dank ! Hanover-April 2017

    We had such a great time introducing our children to Paris and loved staying in Nadia's apartment in the Latin Quarter. The location was ideal and we very much enjoyed the view of the Pantheon from the balcony. The apartment itself was exactly what we needed and it was great to have access to a stove and a refrigerator. Atlanta,...

    f i can, i would keep this gem to myself. All the good reviews about this apartment are true and probably better. We (2pax) stayed in this apartment for 10 nights (during the winter) and let me share with you why this place rocks. 1. This place has a living area, a small kitchen and a proper bed room. For 2-3 pax, it is the perfect balance of space/coziness. 2. There is a small balcony with a view of the pantheon. For smokers, its a welcomed spot to have a puff, breathe some fresh air, enjoy the view without smoking out the place. 3. Strong and stable wifi connection. For travelers, we are know just how important this is. 4. Steady and consistent flow of hot water in the shower. Its a life-saver during winter. 5. Simple but functional kitchen for cooking a few easy dishes / microwave food. A coffee machine if you know how to operate it. 6. Tasteful deco and a book shelf of good (website hidden) with lots of channels. Both in the living room and a small one in the bedroom. 8. Safe and quiet place (esp. at night when you need the much-deserved rest). 9. A short 5mins walk to either Cardinal Lemoine or Jussieu station with many cafe, restaurants, boulangeries around. A franprix and carrefour supermarket is also around the corner. 10. Last and most importantly, Nadia and tony are great hosts. We felt bad for Nadia carrying one of our luggage up 5 levels. Thanks so much for making our stay a very memorable one. SEB, HONG KONG-December 2014,

It is within 2 minutes walk from the Metro station Cardinal Lemoine and there are many restaurants and cafes nearby, and a supermarket located around the corner. Whilst the apartment is rather small it quite suited our needs as we were out and about for most of each day. Would definitely request this apartment for future visits to Paris.
