In the evening, the “Emotion” tasting menu will be served in the hotel’s contemporary dining room. As part of your Exclusive package, the three Michelin starred Chef, Arnaud Lallement will be delighted to meet you and talk to you about the fresh, seasonal and local menu he has prepared for you, and the pairings he has chosen with Champagne Krug Grande Cuvée, Krug Vintage as well as Krug Rosé.
After breakfast on day two, you will be met at your hotel by your private driver who will take you to Champagne Krug, where you will be one of the few to experience an exclusive tour at the Krug Family House, a place lived in and loved for many generations and adjacent to the heart of Krug’s Champagne creation. You will start the experience with a glass of the current Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée in one of the intimate salons of the Maison. After getting acquainted with the philosophy of Joseph Krug in his iconic dark cherry notebook, your host will take you to the cellars to highlight the unique craftsmanship of Krug. Your Krug journey will end with an immersive tasting of two Krug Champagnes where music will have a role to play.
After such an unforgettable morning, the rest of the day is at leisure. You may wish to explore the historic city of Reims, it is after all, the capital of the Champagne region!
Reims was largely rebuilt after the First World War, and is famous for its Gothic Cathedral, where once upon a time, the Kings of France had their coronations. There are plenty of excellent restaurants and cafés and we would be more than happy to provide recommendations for lunch. We will arrange for your driver to collect you from Reims to take you back to your hotel when you are ready.
After a leisurely breakfast on day three, check out of the hotel and begin your homeward journey.

I just wanted to send a note to say what a wonderful trip I experienced in Champagne. The itinerary was great, everything was in order from start to finish. I would say that dinner at l’Assiette Champenoise was absolutely stunning. I would recommend Grape Escapes to anyone travelling to wine regions in Europe.
