Wine Wednesdays – Wine Tasting in Champagne Pt. 2 Moet & Chandon

In contrast to our first appointment at smaller producer, Henri Giraud, our second appointment we went back to the OG and arguably the founder of it all, Moët & Chandon.  At first I was hesitant to tour at such a mass-produced domaine, these are typically the wineries I avoid back in Napa.  But it was actually a really great tour that gave us a bit of the history of the region, a refresher on the Champagne-making process, let us tour a portion of the 28km of caves that sit 10-30 meters underground, and ended with a guided tasting.  

After our tasting, we drove a couple of minutes to the next town of Hautvillers where we visited the Abbey where Dom Pérignon is buried.  The village was very charming and provided a beautiful view on our way out of town.
