“One of those must do's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

This is a very touristy thing to do in Epernay, but it is a lot like visiting Robert Mondavi in Napa Valley. It is a very good place to start your wine travels. The cave tour is impressive and the gift shop has a lot to offer if you want to take something home from your trip that you can hang on your wall.

“Disneyland on champagne”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

A little bit gimmicky with the laser guided train through the cellars and not that informative about the champage process. Mercier was always good at Marketing and the tour really focuses on this.

“If you only have time for one Champagne house, make it this one!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

The tour at the Mercier Champagne House is quite unique! It includes an audio 'tour' in the reception with many interesting historic stories, and a 'train' ride through the underground cellars / caves. Very informative, lots of fun, and of course the tasting at the end was great!

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

Unbelievable exposure to a "cave". Enjoyed the experience and to see the massive quantities of champagne housed was amazing.
The commentary, aboard the train was a little difficult to understand at times but the magnitude of the whole process was eye-opening.
The tasting, at the end of the tour was pleasant. Of course, you do have to pay for the privilege of doing so. Not an issue if this may be your only chance to do so.

“Superb, friendly visit. A must when visiting Epernay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Loved the train ride in the cellars and the polite, friendly staff.
A bit pricey, but then again, we're talking about Champagne...
