Epernay: Mercier Champagne Cellar Visit with Tastings

1. Epernay: Mercier Champagne Cellar Visit with Tastings

In 1871 Eugène Mercier began the pioneering project of constructing wine cellars: “Count by kilometers and not by meters,” he indicated to the architects. A few years later, 18 kilometers of impressive underground tunnels were created with an incredible cellar that now offers visitors the opportunity to experience an inspiring discovery. Come along and discover the Maison Mercier onboard a little train to travel across the cellars. Enjoy the audio tour followed by a tasting of two champagnes, the Mercier Brut and Mercier Brut Blanc de Noirs, with commentary. Possible tour languages include French, English, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch, Japanese, Chinese, Portuguese and Russian.

On August 13 I went on the Reims Champagne Tour from Paris. Our guide, Francois, was extremely knowledgeable and personable. The tour was very well organised and I did not feel rushed at all during the day. We had an extensive, behind the scenes tour at Mumms and lovely champagne tasting. Francois gave us an informative tour of magnificent Rheims Cathedral and then sufficient free time for lunch. The afternoon tour of vineyards in the Champagne region and other samples of champagne was also delightful. If you want to mix champagne and culture, this is definitely a tour to consider.

It tells more about thé Wood Work, thé bottes And thé transport. I lives thé train ride trhough thé tunnels, with sculptures on thé wall!

Very nice experience with the train through the tunnels .... and to see so many bottles of champagne. Highly recommended!

Interesting guided tour with lots of information about the history of champagne and of course the Mercier house.

This tour gives a glimpse into the history of champagne production on a mass scale. Very cool to see.
