The way to CHAMPAGNE

"No, this is not the umptiest champagne website. This site is special because it wasn’t made out of commercial reasons but out of love. Love for a region and a product which share the same name: champagne....

A glass of champagne is no doubt the most complex, inspiring and sensual drink on earth. According to marquise de Pompadour, the favorite lady-in-waiting of Louis XV, “the only wine that doesn’t disturb the beauty of a woman”. Champagne is a wine with a lot of history, a wine that tells a story.

A beverage which generates a lot of misunderstanding. Like : “If you tasted one, you’ve tasted them all”. Those commonplaces we hope to dispose of. The sometimes surprising blends of grape varieties (cépages) combined with the personal touch of the producer make sure that each glass of champagne gives you a different experience.

That enchanted us many years ago, when we made our maiden trip to the Champagne region. So we kept returning, but always had the same questions : which houses should we visit, how to taste champagne, where to eat and sleep?

So we came up with the idea to create this website. Not only to clarify all the misunderstandings about champagne, but also to provide a guideline so that your visit to the region passes off smoothly. But especially to convince you that there’s more to champagne than meets the eye.
