Tour the intimate family atmosphere of Champagne G.H. Martel & Co with its beautiful medieval chalk cellars hollowed out between the forth and 15th centuries. Discover historic and modern techniques in the champagne eco-museum, as well as the 18th century buildings at this winery that began in 1869.
You may recognize the iconic label with an eagle at the top on their signature Brut Prestige wine bottle with 40 percent Chardonnay, 55 percent Pinot Noir, and 5 percent Pinot Meunier grape varieties, while the award-winning Victoire Brut Premiere Cru has 70 percent Chardonnay and 30 percent Pinot Noir grapes.
A friendly guide who speaks English will lead your tour of the Gallo-Roman "crayères" (chalk cellars) that go down to a depth of up to 22 m (72 ft). The on-site museum displays a unique collection of machines and tools from the Champagne region that were used for planting and maintaining the vineyards. Remember to bring a warm sweater, the caves are chilly because the best champagnes become bubbly at a cool 11 C (51.8 F). Reservations recommended, not required.

Very informative, learned a lot about the champagne making process. Our guide (who’s name we sadly can’t remember) was brilliant. 100% recommend.

I don't know, why I couldn't find this place in touristic information. This place really worth visiting. They don't make excursions to the cellars, but for 12 euros (price spring 2018) you can try 3 kinds of their champagne, the cheapest cists 20 euros, and for 6 bottles you pay price of 4 bottles. Very good offer. I enjoyed this place very much.
Of all the places we visited this was the most informative. We had a few different tastings and the person was incredibly informative. I liked the small setting. I learned a lot about champagne that afternoon. We should have bought more bottles to go.
