Très belle et intéressante visite. Guide exceptionnelle . Vin: pas à mon gout et cher ...à mon gout ...
Unique history and excellent champagnes!

I hadn't known about the 1910 Champagne riots before this visit, or that cooperatives like this exist. On the tour you get to see more of the process of making champagne than you get to see at the big brands, and can visit some of the vines as well. Oh and the champagne is very tasty -- we love the blanc de blanc!
Très bon moment

Nous avons été super bien accueillis et les explications étaient très claires. C’était vraiment intéressant de déguster plusieurs champagnes et de pouvoir les comparer. Nous avons personnellement eu une préférence pour le champagne Brut Art Déco.
