{reims} french voyage day 6

March 14, 2017

Much more well-known than Notre-Dame de Reims (even though this is a major place that people visit in Reims) is the fact that this place makes delicious champagne. Champagne is essentially just bubbly wine, but it’s only called Champagne if it comes out of the Champagne region, otherwise, it’s just called sparkling wine. While in Reims, I of course wanted to visited some champagne caves. Reims is known for elaborate underground cave systems that used to be used by monks that are now used to age champagne. It was actually kind of difficult to find a champagne cellar that was one, open, and two, offering tours around the time I was around, and not at a ridiculous price. I ended up going to Taittinger’s Champagne House. It was really neat to get a tour of the cold underground caves learn about how to literally hand stack thousands and thousands of bottles of champagne on top of each other in a way that if one explodes, the ones do not all fall over! Then, of course the members of the tour group got to taste of their delicious champagne. I think the rosé was my favorite!
