Make the most of your time in Reims and discover one of the region’s finest Champagne houses on this 1-hour Mumm Champagne cellar tour. Located in the heart of the Champagne region, the House of Mumm welcomes visitors for a tour of the cellars where some 25 million bottles are stored. Follow your guide through the ancient cellars and gain insight into Mumm’s celebrated Champagne-making traditions and processes. Conclude your tour with a tasting session and sample the fine wine for yourself.
Meet your guide in the plush surroundings of the G.H. Mumm visitor centre in central Reims, and step inside to begin your cellar tour. With grape-laden vineyards spread right across the Champagne region’s rolling hills and one of the industry’s most recognizable bottle labels, G.H. Mumm is widely considered to be France’s finest Champagne producer. Delve deep into the ancient cellars and learn of the complex and traditional processes involved in the production of the famous Mumm Champagne. Hear how the delicate grapes are harvested from the vine each year, and listen as your guide explains their treatment from cellar to glass. Choose the ‘Cordon Rouge Experience’ tour and enjoy a tasting of the Champagne house’s signature Cordon Rouge Champagne, or the ‘G.H. Mumm Experience’ for the cellar tour with a tasting of two delicious cuvées. One of these will be a blind tasting; use your sense of taste and smell to discover the different flavor combinations in the Champagne. For a truly special experience, select the ‘En Noirs and Blancs’ tour and sample two vastly different grapes — a chardonnay and a pinot noir — to test your appreciation of their complex differences. After your cellar visit, spend some time in Mumm’s fascinating Champagne museum to gain further understanding of their 19th-century heritage, then step outside to conclude your tour.
