Avenue de Champagne

by scanos

"Avenue de Champagne"

Its worthwhile visiting the town just to see this avenue. Most of the 4 main producers are situated close to the avenue.

"Visit to the Cellars"

I selected to go to Castellanes to take a guided tour. At 8 euros, includinga glass of champage, it was great value. The guide was excellent and I was amazed to be brought so close to the production process, to see modern and ancient working in harmony.The cellars, even in this smaller producer, are huge - up to 1 km and apparently underpin the whole town. Castellanes produces circa 2,000,000 bottles of champagne per year, small compared to the 20,000,000 of nearby Moet and Chandon, but it is exclusive to the French market. I learnt a lot about Champage on the tour - for example, during the first bottling, a secondary fermentation causes the gas to form and the resultant yeast sediment must be decanted by manual and automated rotatation of the inverted bottles. After this the top part of the contents are frozen, decanted , toppoed up with clear champagne and corked before storage in the cellars.

"Hotel De Ville"

The walk along the Avenue de Champagne is extraordinary and exemplifies the grandeur , past adn present, of the champagne industry. The Hotel De Ville stands out as a proud symbol in this enchating thoroughfare.

"Travel in style or pretend to"

Epernay was the first travel stop of the "Fog and Food" tour where, of course, the fog followed us! After arriving from Leiden the first stop was Moet & Chandon. Because when in Champagne...

Normally, I'm not crazy about Champagne. But I must say that the Moet is a VERY tasty treat! And also, the one item I retained from my tour is that for export to America, a considerable amount of sugar is added. So that must be it. It's much better without all the extra sugar!

Epernay is a sweet little city and a nice place to stay for a couple of days. We stayed at La Briqueterie where I learned to play Canasta, ate some great food and of course, washed it down with wine and Champagne!

While in Epernay we took a day trip to Reims

"Got Dom?"

As we toured the seemingly endless cellar, I wondered if anyone has ever tried to just swipe one as he went along....

Just a thought.

"And be sure to sample!"

Tour choices include: The tour alone. (Boring!). One Sample. (Tightwad!). Two Samples. (Scared?). Three Samples. (Now, we're talking!)

We went for the 3 Sample Tour.
