    Perfect and couldn't have spent my birthday in a better way :)

    Perfect tour with background history, tour with really good passionate guide. You also go down into the basement, can be a little chilly so bring a cardigan. Really good champagne +++++. It included a glass but we bought 2 more for 10 eur. Champagne is available in the order range at the system company (good prices). From the room / house there is a large panorama view on the back with the wine fields, crazy cool.

    Very thorough and explanatory tour with interesting old artefacts. Beautiful scenery with the fields just outside and excellent Champagne. The only disappoint was to find the bottles sold for 30 euros at the boutique sold for 25 euro down town.
