The Basics

Located among the ruins of the Saint-Nicaise Abbey, Taittinger’s chalk caves have earned it UNESCO World Heritage status. At 712 acres (288 hectares),Taittinger is today one of the largest domaines in the Champagne region. It offers a range of world-class cuvées and vintage Champagnes; its Comtes de Champagne cuvée is among its most prestigious releases. A tasting of several different cuvées is included as part of the official tour.

Taittinger also features on numerous Champagne-region itineraries, from small-group and private Champagne-house tours to day-trip excursions from Paris; longer itineraries also tend to stop at other nearby producers, while leaving the driving to someone else.

Small-Group Day Tour of Moët et Chandon and Taittinger with Champagne Tasting from Reims
Informative and fun! Our guide, Rafael, couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating. He was knowledgeable and personable … a pure joy! The tours and tastings were as advertised and the additional Champagne tasting and lunch was definitely worth the extra. Highly recommended.

Small-Group Day Tour of Moët et Chandon and Taittinger with Champagne Tasting from Reims
I was late, but they were very helpful and made sure that I get to the first house properly (They gave me a callback right away). So as not to waste my time, Rafael was very professional and kind - he gave me a tour of the town while others were doing their tour in the first champagne house. Throughout the tour, he made sure that we were comfortable and that we are enjoying the tour. He I very knowledgeable and gave so many insights and stories related to the town and basically all of France. It was such a memorable trip to the Champagne region. Thank you so much!

Small-Group Day Tour of Moët et Chandon and Taittinger with Champagne Tasting from Reims
Our guide Radames was excellent and the tours of Tattinger and Moët & Chandon could not have been better. The small group aspect allowed us to give input and stop to spend some time around the grapevines. Not to be missed!

Exceeded Expectations!

Small-Group Day Tour of Moët et Chandon and Taittinger with Champagne Tasting from Reims
We booked this trip as a last minute decision and didn't really know what to expectm, but we were very happy with everything. Our guide Christoph was very friendly and accomodating, and extremely knowledgable about the area and the Champagne industry. Our train ride to/from Paris to Reims was very easy, as we always find European train travel to be. We were picked up in a large van and taken throught town, and a tour of the local Notre Dame cathedral, which is just beautiful. The tour of Tattinger was probably my favorite part, through the chalk caves and a very interesting description of the process of champagne. The tasting included was basic, but we were able to pay to upgrade to other higher-priced tastings, all very reasonable. Our tour of 8 was added to a larger group, but all very manageable. We drove to Epernay, with a stop at the tomb of Dom Perignon, which was wonderful, and we were able to stop for some very beatiful photos with views of the vineyards. In Epernay we were on our own for lunch or an hour and there are lots of options that are good. We went on to the Avenue of Champagne and stopped at Moet and Chandon for our last tour. It was beautiful and well done, although less personal than the Tattinger in my opinion. It would have been great if we had had some time to walk through Epernay and the other champagne houses, which were beautiful. That would be my only real critque of the day. It might also be nice to visit some smaller family chateaus instead of the very large ones like Tattinger and Moet. But overall, we were extremely happy with the tour. Great value for the price.

Must-Visit Champagne Houses in Reims

Taittinger isn’t the only worthy Reims Champagne house—in fact, the small city is home to several top producers. After your subterranean tour and tasting, visit some other nearby Champagne houses: top picks include Ruinart, established in 1768 and officially the longest-running Champagne producer; Veuve Clicquot, one of the largest and most popular houses; and Pommery, which pioneered the dry style of Champagne.
