Visite/ dégustation au top
By philippine for La Cité du Champagne, 2 dégustations 6 months ago 4.3
Superbe visite/dégustation de la coopérative Collet, nous avons été très bien reçu par notre Guide Marie-Ève, à la fois entraînante et à l’écoute. L’histoire de la maison est très intéressante, et le lieu de la visite impressionnant, de part ses kilomètres de cave et la vue imprenable sur le vignoble! Une fin de visite en beauté avec ( pour notre part) deux dégustations. C’est réellement un bon choix de visite et surtout un bon rapport qualité/ prix! Merci à vous
A great tour!

We found the tour guide very friendly and informative. A very interesting insight into the Champagne production which we really enjoyed. The champagne tasting was lovely and would highly recommend this brand along with the tour.

Visite très intéressante avec notre guide Marielle, professionnelle, sympathique et qui maitrise parfaitement son sujet! Nous recommandons sans hésiter la visite, la plus complète que nous ayons fait dans la région. La dégustation commentée est aussi très appréciable. Merci pour l'accueil.
Fabulous in all respects
By Deepak for The Champagne City, 2 tastings a year ago 5
It first begins with the people in there -they made you feel welcomed as compared to some major houses with a chip. Matilda was a great host and explained details in depth and was equally excited as much as the visitors . The explanation of the activity was great, the place was up to spec and all descriptions were in detail - as a surprise due to good weather and post harvest season Matilda let the group pick on grapes too . The champagnes were nice too so all in all a five star rating . Visited in October 2019
