‘GAUX TO CHAMPAGNE – WHAT TO KNOW
Main Regions: Champagne is broken down into five sub-regions: the Vallée de la Marne, Montagne de Reims, Côte des Blancs, Côte de Sézanne, and Aube (Côte des Bar).
Grape Varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier, though technically Pinot Blanc, Pinot Meslier, Pinot Gris, and Arbane are also permitted.
Fun fact: Although Champagne is often credited with creating the méthode traditionelle, it’s likely that the process was actually first discovered in France’s southerly Languedoc region!
Location / How to Get There: Fly into Charles de Gaulle, then drive 1 hour and 54 minutes by car (to Reims) or take the fast train from the city center (approx. 57 minutes)
Terroir: Although each region and village have their own particular micro climates, the overarching region of Champagne is dominated by cool climates, hilly topography, and signature chalk soils laden with fossilized seashells.
What to Know: Visiting small growers definitely requires a bit of driving. If you prefer tasting with family producers over big houses, be sure to choose a daily designated driver, hire a car service, or have a taxi number on hand – and always book an appointment in advance!
Not to Miss: If staying in (or passing through) Reims, be sure to pop by Au Bon Manger and Glue Pot for exceptional wine lists and great snacking – you may even run into a handful of local winemakers at the latter! For a luxurious and unforgettable dinner, be sure to book a table at Les Crayeres.
