We took the train from Paris to Chateaux Thierry and Champagne Pannier was a short cab ride from the train station. The tour of the champagne cave can be conducted in French or English which you can specify when making the reservation on the Champagne Pannier website. Our group included four people and our tour guide, Eve, was wonderful. She... More

We pre-booked the tour as we were a group of 10 English speakers. We were running a few minutes late for our scheduled tour and the hostess was very accommodating. We make a trip to Champagne every year and this was our first trip to Pannier. This was definitely one of my favourite tours so far. The cellars are impressive,... More

Ant it was free!We came in the morning before leaving to the airport and we got the excursion just for two of us! The medieval cellars were so impressing! We were told there is about 2km... More

An interesting tour of the caves where they keep and mature the champagnes until sales. It was a very well carried tour and as complete novices in the champagne drinking, tasting and understanding, we found it interesting and informative. The tour lasts around 40 minutes which included a tasting at the end. We only tasted the "normal" Brut but for... More

The place has a magnificent history. The tour is short, but really good. It is 10€ to have the visitation and you can taste champagne in the final. Highly recommend!

This Champagne house is unique because the caves/cellars where the wine is stored were originally a medieval underground limestone quarry with miles of tunnels and caves. So when you take the tour, you get to see these incredibly atmospheric caves. Look out for the medieval rock carvings too. On my tour the guide was Elizabeth. She was charming and friendly... More

If you want a real French Champagne experience this is certainly a great idea. We were on a business dining out evening and this venue hit all the right notes. great tour of the caves with the champagne, followed by savouring some of their finest. The food was excellent as was the service. My only complaint would be we ran... More

Book your tour of the medieval caves in advance as we missed out, very enjoyable champagne will definitely revisit next trip. Consistent quality year on year, more marketing than some of the smaller family owned houses but worth the visit as they can have some good deals.
