Private Guided Tour of a Historical Champagne Winery

In 1927 Charlotte’s ancestors bought the Domain of Boursault, formerly owned by Madame (Veuve) Clicquot. In 1843, 10 kilometers west of Epernay, she built a magnificent neo-renaissance-style castle. The mansion quickly became one of the most popular places in the region. Memorable dinners took place at the court of the “Queen of Reims.” Champagne flowed lavishly among the members of the local high society.

Many generations have passed. Charlotte still runs a part of the domain: seven plots in the exclusive familial clos, overlooking the Marne Valley. Press, cellars, and the winery are located in the clos too, only a few hundred meters away. It guarantees superior fruit freshness when it comes to being pressed and transformed.

During this tour, you will discover the Champagne production process, from the vine to the flute. Visit the modern press, the vat room, and the aging cellars underneath the 16th-century family manor. Stroll in the heart of the vineyard and learn more about traditional growing, harvesting, and wine-making methods.
