The flavour of Champagne wine would amount to nothing without the years spent ageing in the chalk cellars. With its 18 km of cellars that you will visit aboard a little train, maison Mercier sets an example. Along the way you'll see the huge wine barrel with a capacity of 200.000 bottles that was made for the 1889 Universal Exhibition. Amongst the surprising flavors of Champagne, how about local snails and Champagne truffles that you can select and sample throughout a meal !
