N°1 Visit Epernay
And drink champagne there
Epernay is THE PLACE TO BE if you are looking for everything that is Champagne-related.
Its famous Avenue de Champagne is named after the many historic houses that are located there, which makes it the richest avenue in the world (not to mention that the very air on this avenue breathes chic).
N°2 Visit a
champagne house & cellar
And taste (drink) champagne there
The 110km of cellars of Epernay are filled with bottles. Take a tour among one of the famous historical houses to learn more about Champagne. Also, you can better buy Champagne from smaller producers (cheaper and often tastier).
N°3 And actually taste champagne
(Never too much champagne)
And OF COURSE taste and appreciate the subtle differences between the Champagnes.Colour, bubbles, aromas, intensity, acidity, notes, finish...
You did not came all the way to drink water, did you ?
N°4 Visit the Beautiful Reims:
capital of champagne & art de vivre
Probably you can find some champagne there
Reims is also a city of Art and History which offers a very pleasant quality of life.
The city is known for its white chalk buildings, known as crayères, and also for its wonderful and massive 13th century cathedral, ranked among UNESCO monuments.
Mr. Dom Pérignon
The monk Dom Pérignon is known today as the inventor of champagne, or at least its method of production : the méthode champenoise. His statue is visible in Epernay, in front of the Moët & Chandon champagne house. He gave his name to one of the most prestigious champagne house, the Dom Pérignon.
