Trip Summary

For those looking for an introduction to the Champagne with a Taittinger tour,  this tour may just be the answer.

After checking in at the 4* Hotel de la Paix on the first day, you will be welcomed at a tasting bar owned by a local Champagne House in the city centre. Here, enjoy a fun and insightful introduction to Champagne, with three tastings served alongside a charcuterie platter.

On day two, after breakfast, a pre-paid taxi will take you to the stunning Taittinger cellars in Reims.  Here you will descend 18 metres below ground level to the breath taking Gallo-Roman chalk quarries, a designated UNESCO Cultural Heritage site. Originally carved out for the extraction of chalk, they are now home to thousands of bottles of Taittinger Comtes de Champagne, which mature here patiently for several years before being enjoyed by Champagne lovers all over the world.

Accommodation

The hotel was excellent, clean, bright, modern and well-equipped. The location was perfect and even though it is a chain hotel, we felt it was very welcoming and not too corporate.
