Winery / Vineyard · Food & Drink
Founded in 1734, Champagne Taittinger is one of the few giant champagne houses still controlled by members of the family that founded it. This is one of the most visitor-friendly of the large champagne houses.

Flagship wines of the house are the Comtes de Champagne composed of 100% Chardonnay and Comtes de Champagne Rosé comprised of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay.

You can visit the forth-century Gothic crayères (chalk mines) that are 17 m (55 ft) below ground and see the only vestiges left of the great 12th-century Saint-Nicaise Abbey. Your tour includes a film about the history of winemaking, a guided cellar tour, the champagne-making process, stories about Reims, and lore about the Taittinger family. The tour concludes with a tasting of one selection with an option to upgrade to more than one tasting. You can go to the visitor's center for a custom tasting.

  • We based ourselves in Eperney for our champagne weekend, but it was worth the train ride to Reims for a visit to Taittinger! It’s one of the most historic locations within the Champagne Region with...  more »

  • This is a must-stop on any champagne tasting and tour. To be sure, Tattinger is a large-scale operation and the visit has that vibe. But, the champagne is amazing, and the tour of the underground cellars is amazing. It's one-part champagne production and one-part history lesson. Take your time, and spend the money to do a couple of tastings. You won't be disappointed.
  • Extremely impressive caves where they store the champagne. It was a lovely tour! Only got 2 tastings and I felt like we should have had 3...
  • Great tour, beautiful underground cellars. Worth a visit
  • The wifi didn't work for any of us on the tour. But the tour itself was interesting and professional. The network of tunnels is mind-boggling and the chalk quarries are impressive, and of course the thousands of bottles of champagne worth millions will send shivers down some guests' spines. The tasting at the end is guided, but beginner champagne drinkers might find they could use more direction in evaluating what they're drinking.
  • Great tour in English. Fascinating process to learn about. My wife and I walked in here on our honeymoon and got a reasonably priced tour coupled with a glass of champagne. We did not have reservations for our tour but they were able to accommodate us either way. We went during the summer, so we were happy with how cool it was in the cellar. Overall a great tour that I would recommend to anyone, even people who don't like champagne.
