A visit to Taittinger was informative, short and courteous of the family owned estate. Covered all the points that needed to be covered and included a single tasting of the 80% produced product. For 8 Euros more you get to taste a second champagne of choice. The visit is what is expected; automated, informative, and covers the point.

My wife and I visited Reims on Feb. 20, 2015 to visit 2 champagne houses, Pommery and Taittinger. For our tour of Taittinger, we told the reception person my wife had a disability that made using stairs difficult. She assured us our tour guide would be notified and we would be able to access the elevators during the tour. Well,... More

We went to visit the winery on a Monday afternoon after calling and confirming in the morning. The visit itself was very interesting - the guide spoke great English, showed us the caves, explained how champagne is made and clarified on the different types of champagne. I definitely recommend the visit to people who are interested in the champagne making... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour - have to say; more than I expected - the guide was so informative, and bought in lots of interesting bits of information. The caves were huge and historic. Well worth it.

Loved seeing all the caves with large quantities of bottles of great champagne and it was well worth the visit and we had a great tasting and met some really nice people. I bought a box with one bottle of Taittinger and two glasses - it was difficult transporting this and when we got to San Franscisco after travelling all... More

Really interesting visit, full of culture, history and good champagne. Martine offered us a private visit and it was the best! Very professional.

There are a number of great Champagne houses in Reims. Tattinger makes great bubbles, but the tour is hardly worth the effort. I suggest Pommery and Frankel House as better alternatives.

Our tour of Taittinger was conducted by Katrin, a most lovely, elegant, eloquent and capable woman. The tour was outstanding thanks to her, and the tasting is wonderful although it's a bit limited. We did this one followed then by Ruinart (which is much more expensive- but worth every euro) and if we had to pick only one tour it... More

This place was just beautiful, with the history of the brand and of the cellars. The underground tunnels were originally excavated by Romans for chalk stone for their buildings in Reims. Then they were further expanded by the monks who made their wine there already in the middle ages. Later the Taitinger family aquaired the old church ruins to find... More
