Founded in 1734, Champagne Taittinger is one of the few giant champagne houses still controlled by members of the family that founded it. This is one of the most visitor-friendly of the large champagne houses.
Flagship wines of the house are the Comtes de Champagne composed of 100% Chardonnay and Comtes de Champagne Rosé comprised of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay.
You can visit the forth-century Gothic crayères (chalk mines) that are 17 m (55 ft) below ground and see the only vestiges left of the great 12th-century Saint-Nicaise Abbey. Your tour includes a film about the history of winemaking, a guided cellar tour, the champagne-making process, stories about Reims, and lore about the Taittinger family. The tour concludes with a tasting of one selection with an option to upgrade to more than one tasting. You can go to the visitor's center for a custom tasting.

This is a must-stop on any champagne tasting and tour. To be sure, Tattinger is a large-scale operation and the visit has that vibe. But, the champagne is amazing, and the tour of the underground cellars is amazing. It's one-part champagne production and one-part history lesson. Take your time, and spend the money to do a couple of tastings. You won't be disappointed.
Extremely impressive caves where they store the champagne. It was a lovely tour! Only got 2 tastings and I felt like we should have had 3...
