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

Stumbled on this champagne house while we waited for a scheduled tour at another. The atmosphere was a little stuffy, and at first the staff seemed a little uptight, but we quickly realized they were just extremely proud of their champagne. The champagne was excellent and the prices were very reasonable. Worth a visit if you have 30 minutes to... More

We came across this Champagne house having seen the chateau picture in a book. It's at the end of the Avenue Champagne, but was well worth the extra short walk. Upon arrival we were immediately greeted by a very well presented young man. He was very informative and helpful. We had a Personal tasting session, and sat on the lawn... More

We visited this champagne house based on TA reviews and can't say enough good things about our experience here. From the moment we walked into the estate we were greeted warmly by Nicholas who made us feel very welcome. He explained the options available to us for our visit and we chose to taste the 6 champagnes available (3 champagnes... More
