Moët & Chandon Cellars
Moët & Chandon Cellars (20 avenue de Champagne, 51200 Epernay) – to walk through Moët & Chandon’s wine cellars in Epernay is to enter the very heart of this champagne maker. Located 10 to 30-meters under the chalky soil, Moët & Chandon’s cellars are the largest within the Champagne region, spanning 28km (approx.. 17.4 miles). In this legendary subterranean labyrinth, the forces of nature have come together to create a uniquely ideal setting for the metamorphosis of choice fruit into the House’s luxurious wine. Select grapes undergo their transformation into champagne in conditions where temperature and humidity levels are constant and unchanging.
Regularly scheduled tours of the cellars followed by a tasting can be enjoyed throughout the season and bespoke tastings and tours can be arranged at your convenience. Tours hours are from 9:30 am – 11:30 am and 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm. Prices range from €21 per person (“traditional” visit – includes 1 flute of champagne), to €28 (“imperial” visit – includes 2 flutes of champagne, and €35 (“grand vintage” – 2 flutes of champagne: White 2004 and Rosé 2002). Those under 18 can also participate in such tours (€10 per person), but cannot participate in champagne tastings. Those under 10 years are allowed in free.
