We turned up with friends from the U.K. at the last minute. A fabulous guide (called Jeanne) showed us around the magnificent underground caves and wine making facilities. Very interesting, great humour and thoroughly enjoyable. We have visited many times, this particular visit was excellent.

Lovely hour spent on a guided tour with a friendly, knowledgeable guide (Emilie was lovely). We were the only people on the English-speaking tour. Fascinating insight into the sparkling wine-making process. The caves were mysterious and surprising. Followed by a non-pressured wine tasting. Would definitely...More
