This month : Reims and its Champagne

 

 

 

Reims and the Champagne region

 

Champagne in Reims ランスのシャンパーニュ KER DE FRANCE

As soon as you pack your bags, you can already feel that in Reims, Champagne is everywhere. It is the sparkling drink of choice for lovers, friends and parties. Here it is much more than a drink for special occasions. It is a whole universe, combining the luxury of the greatest Champagne houses, the majesty of their cellars, the splendor of the Champagne vineyards and the authenticity of a meeting with the winemakers.

 

In any case, we can only encourage you to visit one of the houses located on the Saint-Nicaise hill, one of the three sites of the inscription of the Champagne Landscapes on the UNESCO World Heritage List. What a surprise to discover their immense chalk cathedrals where millions of bottles lie dormant. At the end of the visits, the tasting stage will allow you to savor the flagship cuvée of the House before perhaps passing by the boutique.

 

If you can, select at least two. The dilemma will then be to choose which ones.
De Cazanove, Lanson, G.H. Mumm, G.H. Martel, Pommery.... you certainly have an attachment or a particular penchant for one of these names.

 

 

THE GREAT REIMS : HAUTVILLERS

 

The Champagne village par excellence

If there is a place where the word Champagne takes all its meaning, it is Hautvillers, a typical Champagne village whose slopes are listed in the world heritage of UNESCO.

Hautvillers is the cradle of Champagne. It is here that a certain Dom Pérignon developed the Champagne method, which made Champagne the king of wines.

The Tourist Office offers two guided electric bicycle tours of the historic hillsides, which are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In order to enjoy the sun, you may opt for thecircuit of the Pedestal of Dom Pérignon. This 3 km tour reveals Hautvillers on the vineyard side, on the valley side. You will approach the abbey church of Dom Pérignon, where rests the famous monk, the father of champagne according to the tradition.

Then, between two vineyard paths, a photo stop will be necessary at the most famous viewpoint of the Marne valley, the Dom Pérignon belvedere, at the beginning of the vertiginous descent towards the river. You just have to cross the city gates, to the south, to find yourself in a sea of vineyards, which cover the the hillsides of the Montagne de Reims.

Number of winegrowers and cooperatives open their doors, mainly during the week, and present with passion their job, from the work of the vine to the transformation of Champagne. You can feel in their words the love they have for their land and their family heritage. These authentic encounters will undoubtedly be one of the most outstanding memories of your trip.

Reims Cathedral ランス大聖堂 KER DE FRANCE

CATHEDRALS OF REIMS


Discover the mysteries of one of the most important cathedrals in history: Place of the coronations of the kings of France. 

Saling the smiling angel, emblem of the City of the Sacred Hearts: a royal visit awaits you!

Gothic cathedral registered since 1991 on the Unesco world heritage list with the old Saint-Rémi abbey and the Tau palace.
If on the artistic level, Notre-Dame de Reims is one of the most admirable among the great Gothic cathedrals, from the point of view of national history, it has also played an essential role. It was in fact in the primitive cathedral that the bishop Saint Remi baptized Clovis on Christmas Day 498 (or 496) and it is for this reason that from Louis VII onwards, all the kings of France, with the exception of Henri IV and Louis XVIII, were crowned there. The last coronation was that of Charles X (1825).

Most of the cathedral was destroyed during the First World War, but it has been rebuilt.
The cathedral's treasure is kept in the Tau Palace, which once housed the former archbishop's palace.
