Our guide, a young intern from the Loire Valley working at the winery, was very knowledgeable and personable, providing detailed explanations of the history of the house and the production processes, and answering all our questions. After our tasting session the woman who managed the sales office helped us with our purchases, then suggested a local wine seller for additional champagnes and even gave us some suggestions for our next stop in the Burgundy region. The whole experience was easy and enjoyable - thanks!
This was a lot of fun and all the guides were knowledgeable and friendly. The 3 champagne wineries were very different… very big and well known Moët & Chandon, very small and organic Gabriel Boutet, and the mid-sized cooperative Don Chandon. Our fellow guests made the trip even more enjoyable, but it was well designed by the company to give us a varied taste of the region.
It is a great way to see and learn something of the area, get introduced to smaller interesting vineyards, learn about Champagne and taste of course.
Had a great day with JB! Perfect way to celebrate my birthday and would definitely recommend to others looking for a bougie and unique experience
Very special experience. Learned so much about champagne from our guide!! It was interesting, fun, and educational!! Would do it again.
