On this luxury tour, you will be met at you preferred pick up point (your hotel, the train station or the city centre) by a luxury chauffeured vehicle (Mercedes S Class), which will accompany you throughout the day on a private basis. During the course of the day, you will be taken out into the vineyards to a visit to a small, family-run Grand Cru Champagne House for a tour of the fascinating Champagne-making process from press to bottle and the opportunity to learn the Napoleonic art of Sabrage (opening a bottle with a sabre). You will also be taken to the beautiful village of Hautvillers, where Dom Pérignon lived and is buried. Here, you will enjoy a comparative tasting session of three single varietal Champagnes, accompanied by platters of gourmet local delicacies amd cheeses.
In the afternoon, guests are free to choose their favourite large, prestigious Champagne House for a tour and a flute or two of their Champagnes. There are several options subject to your preference and availabilities, including Taittinger, GH Mumm, Pommery, Ruinart and Veuve Clicquot. Please note that a number of the more exclusive estates do not tend to receive visitors at weekends and some of them do not receive visitors at all. We would be pleased to discuss the various options with you and contact the individual estates accordingly. The highlight of your tour will be the experience as the VIP guests of the largest and grandest Champagne House, Moët et Chandon, where you will have a private Dom Pérignon tour. You will be visiting some of the oldest areas of the cellars which are seldom visited by the public and a tasting of Dom Pérignon will conclude the visit in an elegant reception room at the Moët mansion.
Bring friends and spend less! A discount of £200 per person applies to groups of four people or more.
