The Château Comtesse is beautiful, and the extra brut to die for, i can say the prices are not high enough compare to the quality of the Champagne Comtesse.

We were a group of 8 wandering the streets of Epernay after a tasting at Mercier. We had a delightful sampling outdoors on the lawn as the sun set at Comtesse Lafond. The beautiful and accomodating proprietor kindly bought us champagne and some grissini to enjoy. No purchases made, but the champagne was wonderful nonetheless - we were simply living... More

The house is amazing, the story behind the house is great. The champagne and the respective wines are superb and the lady who provides the information is more than friendly and attentive. It was a very great experience, enjoyed all the wines bougt back home and will shortly go back again.

Situated in the most beautifully restored chateau, this degustation was a beautiful and intimate way to learn about this very elegant champagne. Clearly explained by a very charming and polite young man who gave us an insight into this family run business. Highly recommended!!!!!

This was an absolutely incredible property and tasting experience. We prefer the smaller, family run vineyards. The champagne was very good. We got three tastings each and decided to take some home with us and wanted to taste one more each to decide which would make the trip with us. Unfortunately our visit was spoiled when we decided to buy... More

I cannot recommend this place enough! The setting is stunning, tasting room beautiful and the champagne is great as well. Worth walking past all the well known names to find this treasure. The staff are extremely helpful and knowledgable. A must in Epernay.

During a long weekend in the Champagne region, where we visit each year as a large (6-10 people) group, three of us chose to visit Lafond upon the recommendation of one of the group who went two years ago and loved it. It was a hot sunny day and we were able to sit outside in the beautiful courtyard to... More

Conveniently located almost opposite La Villa Eugene where we were staying this is a beautiful building owned by a well known winemaker who has only recently entered the Champagne market. The courtyard and garden are delightful and the service excellent. The champagne was very good, though not our favourite and the extra brut was splendidly dry. You can arrive by... More

We were a group of four and went at 10.30 on Sunday as it was the only house open. We paid to taste 5 champagnes and found the young gentlemen who served us to be very friendly and took the time to explain the champagnes to us. When we asked about the cognac and wines on display he gave us... More

First of all: we advise you not to go to this champagne house , they charge you more than they tell you when you come in and they were uninterested and unfriendly during and after our champagne tasting. Our experience: After a quick look on tripadvisor, we decided to visit Comtesse Lafond for a tour. Unfortunately (?), this champagne house... More
