We walked in off the street after strolling down the avenue. Even though it was just towards the end of lunch time they opened up the tasting room early for us and we tried four different types. A very small producer in comparison to the big houses but all of their varieties were great. We spent a great hour their... More

As we wandered the avenue of champagne in Epernay. We went right out of the Mercier tour up the street to Chateau Comtesse Lafond to see this wonderfully colorful setting of grounds with a large green lawn overlooking the valley below. This is a little chateau being upgraded and worked on the day we got there. But the tasting room... More

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
