Every Champagne House is unique. Some Maisons are using more Chardonnay grapes to express the elegance and freshness. Other Maisons ar using more Pinot Noir grapes for intensity and exquisite taste, like Champagne Bollinger. What you prefer depends entirely on your own personal taste.

Discover all the best the Champagne Region has to offer; the vineyard, the grapes, the soil, the winegrowers, wineries and ofcourse the best Champagne Houses to visit.
