A tasting

The champagne

Châlons-en-Champagne, labeled Vignobles et Découvertes in 2021, is an ideal gateway to complete your discovery of Champagne.

Founded in 1825, Joseph Perrier has engraved its name in the heart of the Champagne region through its remarkable history. Travel to the heart of its Gallo-Roman cellars of the 4th century during a visit and tasting. A house that elegantly blends modernity and tradition.

Then share the passion of wine and effervescence in a museum about the history of champagne, the Champagne Famille Carbot Museum.

If you want an atypical tasting, the Tourist Office proposes a tasting in the medieval cellars, historical cellars dating from the XIIIth century and the XVth century.
