The Champagne region is on my list of things to do/see when I do make it to Paris next year. I will have to check out this tour, sounds great.


Oh, I wanted to mention that Veuve Clicqot is by far my favorite champagne.

It sounds very good, but it is a bit meager. A visit to the Champagne region, without going also to Epernay or one of the grand cru villages is not complete. And in any village in the region there are small champagne houses in abundance where you can visit, get free tastings and reasonably priced bottles. Personally, I think the 130 euros is better spent on renting a car and going yourself.

And when in Epernay, be sure to visit madame Salvatore, a very small shop, packed with exclusive, reasonably priced champagnes, run by a very lovely old lady.

Oh, and another thing, try to find out about a house where you can have a sabrage experience. You can try Brugnon in Rilly la Montagne.
