Enjoy a très chic champagne tasting session.
Champagne is a trademarked alcoholic beverage exclusive to France. Produced in a very specific territory, visiting a Champagne cellar is a unique cultural experience that indulges your senses.
It is not so well known but the world-famous Champagne route starts in the Picardy region of France, only an hour away from Paris. Visiting a Champagne cellar is a must for those who love food and drink. Go to Champagne Pannier, one of the most prestigious Champagne houses. Bubbly from this area is served in the Elysée Palace, the French president’s house, and on some of Air France’s first and business class services.
Fully satisfy your curiosity about Champagne with a visit to Champagne Pannier’s house. Start with a guided tour of the medieval cellar where the Champagne ages for many years. A quarry in the Middle Ages and then a shelter in wartime, Champagne cellars only began to hold bubbly at the beginning of the 20th century.
Learn everything you wanted to know about the history of Champagne, how the drink became popular and how it is made. Unravel all the mysteries behind Champagne’s sparkle. The visit ends in style with a Champagne tasting session. For those who want to impress their friends and family back home, learn how to pair Indian food with this famous French drink.
Feeling hungry? Before returning to Paris, enjoy a typical French meal in a local brasserie or an Indian lunch for those missing food back home.
