Mercier visit - access for all

Champagne Houses

Please don't die before knocking on a couple of doors on the Avenue de Champagne in Epernay.

Don't feel bad about it - the major Houses located on the Avenue all charge you for the tour and the tasting afterwards!!

A tip re the tasting part - more bang for your buck!

Suffer from mobility problems? Taking the baby or very young children with you?
Some houses have many stairs to climb/descend during a visit.
Take the weight off your feet. Mercier has a lift (elevator) and a petit train ride around the cellars.

Do I qualify? In the "When was your last visit:" section I have put - "I visit frequently"..... Every second year since 1994 : a couple of times twice in the year. Could be "frequent"? Anyway several visits plus the odd taste or two back on the range in Australia leads me to have an opinion on the product of the region.
