The cellars were under renovation, so we were directed to a event space where the tastings were held. But it was an easy walk from our hotel. The event space was well designed, and the host was knowledgeable. Well worth it.

The official Taittinger was being remodeled, so they were located in a temporary tasting room. Although the building was beautiful, there wasn’t much to the tasting. However, the charge was still very high. It seems if they are going to continue in a temporary space, there should at least be a reduction in cost, or applying part of the tasting to any purchases. We love the champagne, but the visit added no value

Very overpriced- £20 per small glass of champagne and a real sense of being inconvenient.

The cellars are closed and the alternative - a large table in an ancestral home seemed appealing. The reality is a one hour, two drink, tasting session with some history of champagne.

Save your money and go on the Mumm tour - or the best thing to do is to get out of Reims itself and visit smaller houses yourself- they are warm and welcoming.

We went this weekend to the Taittinger experience because the cellars are under renovation - we thoroughly enjoyed it.

We had an overview of the history of Taittinger, in a wonderful old building that was set very simply as a royal, medieval dining area. We listened to a recording of a story 'A la table de Thibaud 1V' and tasted champagne at the same time.

We happened to be asked to act as the Kind and Queen so we got to sit at the top of the table and be part of the overall experience - this was quite unexpected but really rather fun......(and the rest of the guests were good sports!)

The staff were really good - a great overview and we felt educated a little more, all at the same time as tasting some lovely Champagne.

As the cellars and caves were undergoing renovations all tourists had to go to the new city pop up. While it was not a cellar , it was a good experience as we had a variety of wines, and listened to the story of the count of champagne. However the story was hard to hear from the speakers above and I Finn’s that no one was reall paying attention ( focused on the wine ) overall a fun little 45 minute experience

We knew the normal tours weren't happening so we did a tasting with audio story. Elvie and Juliet were our tour guides and we enjoyed it. We had already done other tours so we weren't looking for explanations of how the Champagne was made, so we enjoyed this. And our guides were lovely and answered all our questions. We enjoyed the experience and the lovely champagne!

The cellars are closed. They take you to a small room and play a recording with minimal explanation about the actual champagnes they are pouring. The recording is only audio and no visual and you can’t even hear the gals pouring the champagne. Everyone is so bored out of their minds they are all on their phones and no one is paying attention. This is our fourth tour in Reims and by far the worst… no tour was expected since the cellars are under renovations and it’s just a tasting, however, it’s the most impersonal and least interesting in the area. It’s so commercialized and the lack of passion, personality and overall experience is not representative of the area and frankly, sad. I would not waste my money here. You only get to taste two champagnes and the difference between the two is relatively unnoticeable. No info on the culture, the vineyards themselves, the production or the terroir. Would rather have a show and a Turkey leg at Medieval times in LA… and I hate LA.

Dear Sabrina, We thank you for taking the time to write this comment. Our client's opinions are essential in being able to refine this experience that we have just launched. We are doing our best to communicate about the recent closure of our cellars and to avoid misunderstandings about our new experience. Due to the closing of our cellars, we wished to offer a different approach to our tasting concept by focusing on a cultural dimension. It is a chance for us to present you the emblematic character of our house, Thibaud the IVth, Count of Champagne. We have chosen a radio format that allows us to appeal to everyone’s imagination, sharpen concentration, and change the perception of the tasting. We have worked with several artists, authors, music composers, historians, and a dozen of comedians for the banquet voices, in order to make this experience as lively as possible, but we understand that this may not please everyone. We hope to be able to welcome you differently during your next visit to Reims. We invite you to contact us by email at visites@taittinger.fr, as we would be delighted to contact you for the re-opening of our main visit centre in 2024, and to propose a new experience that we hope will live up to your expectations. Kind regards, The Taittinger team

This wasn’t my first visit to Reims and every time I’m there i try to visit different champagne company. This time i had a bit of a problem since i was driving thru Reims on Sunday and many places were closed. Since Taittinger was opened i booked a guided English tour. The caves itself are really impressive, that’s for sure. The lady who was in charge of our took spoke perfect English but boy was she quick. She was just talking very very fast giving the impression it was a chore for her. We were rushed thru the caves, without really having time to take pictures or anything. The tasting was also handled in the same manner. The duration if the tour was according to the Internet page 90 minutes, we were done in an hour and couple of minutes… If you have a choice - go somewhere else, there are lots of lovely choices in Reims, unfortunately not on Sunday.

Taittinger offers a rather dull standard tour round the cellars deep underground. First a little film, then an (English spoken) tour where you’ll learn a little about champagne-making.

No sparkling stories, no drama, just plain education

- followed by the 1 or 2 glasses of champagne you’ve paid for in advance; not a drop more.

Two pieces of advice: Choose the pink champagne which is much more tasty than the Brut Reserve … and don’t book the tour if you are not prepared to climb quite a few stairs.

Great tour and excellent champagne. Pay a little extra to get the premium champagne tasting. The only thing that we did not like was that they allowed small children in the tour. The kids were annoying, screaming, sick and annoying to everyone. I told tour guide that small children should not be allowed. Of course it was an American family that did not care if their kids ruined the tour for everyone else. We live in South Florida and expect that here, but I think it is very rude to ruin people's experience by traveling with such small children especially when they are sick and obnoxious.
