Create an itinerary including Champagne Taittinger
Founded in 1734, Champagne Taittinger is one of the few giant champagne houses still controlled by members of the family that founded it. This is one of the most visitor-friendly of the large champagne houses.

Flagship wines of the house are the Comtes de Champagne composed of 100% Chardonnay and Comtes de Champagne Rosé comprised of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay.

You can visit the forth-century Gothic crayères (chalk mines) that are 17 m (55 ft) below ground and see the only vestiges left of the great 12th-century Saint-Nicaise Abbey. Your tour includes a film about the history of winemaking, a guided cellar tour, the champagne-making process, stories about Reims, and lore about the Taittinger family. The tour concludes with a tasting of one selection with an option to upgrade to more than one tasting. You can go to the visitor's center for a custom tasting.

  • Tour of the caves and champagne tasting were great. Impressive caves, containing about 2.5 mio bottles per kilometer of caves. Made around 300 AD. Use as a hideout and a hospital during world wars...

  • The tour was really cool, if you have been on a champagne cellar tour before you probably already know all the information and then I would recommend you just come in for a tasting. Of the cellar...

  • Great place to visit to see some of the earliest champagne cellars. Very informative tour, available in English or French. The cellars are amazing in their scale and age. Millions of bottles of champagne are kept here. Highly recommended.
  • It’s a beautiful cellar but I found the tour a bit limiting and our tour guide did not have a good knowledge of the product (she said that there’s 36 grams of sugar in Champagne when a guest asked her). The tasting was pretty limited as well. An express description and people were ushered out quickly. I can only imagine how worse it gets during high season. For the amount we paid, it didn’t feel special. If you’re looking for a big wine house to visit, go to Pommery instead.
