First of all, the tour visited a large producer (Moët) known as a ‘negotiant’ as they buy in most of their grapes from producers. Moët have very plush premises in Epernay and the tour was well-polished, finishing off with a sample of Moët Imperiale. The next stop was at a small producer and champagne maker, Julien Chopin. The sampling was far more generous with 3 Champagnes and a dessert wine. They served lunch too, which was plentiful and tasty. This was our favourite stop and the Champagne was very nice. Finally we went to a cooperative whose name escapes me. They have an emphasis of using Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunière grapes. We had 3 samples here, though a bit smaller in size than in the other two producers. Throughout the trip we were given lots of information about the Champagne making process, it was fascinating. The driver and guide for the day was Julia and she was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable, had a pleasant personality and spoke excellent English too.
I more than highly recommend this EBike Champagne tour!!! From pickup to drop-off our guide Suzanne was extremely knowledgeable, kind and helpful. We loved it so much as the pace of the tour was never rushed. Suzanne took the time to let us stop and enjoy the scenery, learn about the harvest and take pictures if we wanted to. The biking through the fields was so beautiful, the lunch was superb and the private look into the making of champagne was so interesting. We will definitely go back and have her as our guide again and bring along more friends.
Our tour on 10th March 2020 was absolutely excellent. Martin was super knowledgable about Reims, champagne and much more! We had a fantastic morning and even found a potential champagne supplier for my wedding, for which Martin was very helpful in explaining how the process would work. No doubt we will be back for an official wedding champagne tasting! Martin also recommended some local restaurants and bars for the remainder of our stay in Reims and Epernay which was great to get some local insight. Thanks Martin!
The guide was very nice and told us a lot of things about champagne, the makingmof, the region etc. We could ask a lot of questions. We were lucky to be just the two of us, my friend and me. Not so great was that we could only taste one small glass of Champagne in the Taittinger factory. They could offer another one-also to compare
