The minute I stepped out of the rental and observed the well kept grounds, I knew I was in for a bubbly good time. Seeing the collection of Moet bottles on display to illustrate the different sizes that contain my favorite fizzy elixir was eye opening. I had never heard of a Nebuchadnezzar before except in association with the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, and of course I now wanted one. I have yet to plan the get together where I will need 20 bottles (= a Nebu) though.

With perfect weather, we elected to have lunch on the terrace overlooking the green oasis that is the Chandon property; oysters on the half shell and Alaskan Halibut with a bottle of Etoile . . . the stuff that last meals are made of. This was not just a place to do some champagne tasting, it was a darn good restaurant. I settled back in my chair after finishing my meal, looked at my empty flute with remorse, then called the waiter over and said, "Keep the corks popping please". I was home!

Beautiful property, great restaurant (Etoile) and long interesting history. Consistent good bubbles too! Great place to grab a taste and a nibble and sit outside to enjoy the weather.

We went to lunch at Etoile in Chandon and the service and food was spectacular. We had the charcuterie and the scallop dish. The presentation and creative flavors were amazing.

Our service was excellent and of course the reserve rose Etoile champagne was perfect. Wonderful way to spend a relaxing afternoon enjoying the holiday season.

You have a lot of choices in the area but, if you like good champagne and a lovely dining experience go.

Great wine bar to taste still or sparkling and an award winning restaurant on-site. I especially enjoy lunch on the patio under the oaks - beautiful.
