The Basics

Located among the ruins of the Saint-Nicaise Abbey, Taittinger’s chalk caves have earned it UNESCO World Heritage status. At 712 acres (288 hectares),Taittinger is today one of the largest domaines in the Champagne region. It offers a range of world-class cuvées and vintage Champagnes; its Comtes de Champagne cuvée is among its most prestigious releases. A tasting of several different cuvées is included as part of the official tour.

Taittinger also features on numerous Champagne-region itineraries, from small-group and private Champagne-house tours to day-trip excursions from Paris; longer itineraries also tend to stop at other nearby producers, while leaving the driving to someone else.

Small-Group Day Tour of Moët et Chandon and Taittinger with Champagne Tasting from Reims
Our guide Radames was excellent and the tours of Tattinger and Moët & Chandon could not have been better. The small group aspect allowed us to give input and stop to spend some time around the grapevines. Not to be missed!

Exceeded Expectations!

Small-Group Day Tour of Moët et Chandon and Taittinger with Champagne Tasting from Reims
We booked this trip as a last minute decision and didn't really know what to expectm, but we were very happy with everything. Our guide Christoph was very friendly and accomodating, and extremely knowledgable about the area and the Champagne industry. Our train ride to/from Paris to Reims was very easy, as we always find European train travel to be. We were picked up in a large van and taken throught town, and a tour of the local Notre Dame cathedral, which is just beautiful. The tour of Tattinger was probably my favorite part, through the chalk caves and a very interesting description of the process of champagne. The tasting included was basic, but we were able to pay to upgrade to other higher-priced tastings, all very reasonable. Our tour of 8 was added to a larger group, but all very manageable. We drove to Epernay, with a stop at the tomb of Dom Perignon, which was wonderful, and we were able to stop for some very beatiful photos with views of the vineyards. In Epernay we were on our own for lunch or an hour and there are lots of options that are good. We went on to the Avenue of Champagne and stopped at Moet and Chandon for our last tour. It was beautiful and well done, although less personal than the Tattinger in my opinion. It would have been great if we had had some time to walk through Epernay and the other champagne houses, which were beautiful. That would be my only real critque of the day. It might also be nice to visit some smaller family chateaus instead of the very large ones like Tattinger and Moet. But overall, we were extremely happy with the tour. Great value for the price.

A Noteworthy Toast to Champagne

Small-Group Day Tour of Moët et Chandon and Taittinger with Champagne Tasting from Reims
Our tour guide, Christophe, was very knowledgeable to the area, champagne, and history. The small group tour is recommended as it was easy for use to all tour the various champagne houses together. Both champagne tours and tasting gave us a better understanding of how champagne is made from start to finish. Depending on time of year you tour be prepared to get a little colder down in the caves below as you tour. Being summer when we toured, it actually was a nice cool-off, and you don't spend too much time standing around in the caves. Our guided recommended several places to grab a bite for lunch, which was about an hour, before heading to our next tasting. Take advantage of the local restaurants, shops, and parks in the area while at lunch. Have your cameras ready at all times as there's so much to see. Enjoy your tour in Champagne. Cheers.

Must-Visit Champagne Houses in Reims

Taittinger isn’t the only worthy Reims Champagne house—in fact, the small city is home to several top producers. After your subterranean tour and tasting, visit some other nearby Champagne houses: top picks include Ruinart, established in 1768 and officially the longest-running Champagne producer; Veuve Clicquot, one of the largest and most popular houses; and Pommery, which pioneered the dry style of Champagne.
