Champagne G.H. Martel & C° was founded in 1869 by the Tabourin family, a wine grower and wine maker from Avenay Val d’Or, a small village a few miles from Epernay.

In 1910, H.L. Tabourin began with the development of the G.H. Martel & C° trademark, which he had bought in the early 20’s.

In 1979, the death of André, the son of H.L. Tabourin posed the difficult problem of succession.

Champagne Ernest Rapeneau, founded in 1901, acquired a majority of the shareholding in G.H. Martel with the aim to use G.H. Martel & C° as the spearhead for its activities in the Champagne region of France. After 50 years of intense activities, Ernest Rapeneau retired from the business, he handed over the direction to his sons, François and Bernard.

The personality of G.H. Martel & C° Champagne is based on the know-how of the Rapeneau family, who has been involved in making this white wine for 4 generations. Cellar master and Oenologist, Christophe, Bernard’s younger son, now runs the House, while his older son, Jean-François, is responsible for the sales development of the brand.

La personne qui nous guidait était très intéressante et très agréable, les caves beaucoup plus petites que le laissait entendre la pub. Par contre la dégustation très décevante, champagne vert presqu'acide, c'est vrai que nous n'avions pas pris la formule prestige. En tout cas cela ne donne pas envie d'acheter du champagne. Personnellement je referais un essai dans une cave plus prestigieuse, mais je n'étais pas la seule déçue de la dégustation , il vaudrait mieux ne boire qu'une coupe mais bonne au lieu de trois.
The person who guided us was very interesting and very pleasant, the cellars much smaller than the advertisement suggested. On the other hand the very disappointing tasting, almost acidic green champagne, it is true that we had not taken the prestige formula. In any case, it does not make you want to buy champagne. Personally, I would try again in a more prestigious cellar, but I was not the only one disappointed with the tasting, it would be better to drink only one cup but good instead of three.

Bonjour, Visite très agréable, très instructive, allant à l'essentiel sans fioritures. Une immersion dans une crayere avec de vraies flacons nous auraient comblé mais nous le savions au départ. Les dégustations proposées étaient bien choisies et nous agréablement plus. Une maison bien présentée et représentée.
Hello, Very pleasant visit, very informative, going to the essentials without frills. An immersion in a chalk with real bottles would have satisfied us but we knew it at the start. The tastings offered were well chosen and we pleasantly more. A well presented and represented house.

Very nice tour & tasting! We learned a lot about Champagne and its production. It is good to know that the Champagne is being made & stored in another location of G.H. Martel. But we certainly do recommend it if you are visiting the city of Reims!
Très belle visite et dégustation! Nous avons beaucoup appris sur le Champagne et sa production. Il est bon de savoir que le Champagne est fabriqué et stocké dans un autre lieu de GH Martel. Mais nous le recommandons certainement si vous visitez la ville de Reims!

It was an awesome and interesting tour ! Fascinating to see these huge caves - and as we booked the a little bit more expensive tour, we enjoyed an vintage which was perfect. Also: the tour guide ( younger dark haired lady with perfect English) was friendly funny and told us a lot about champagne and it’s process. I highly recommend the tour and especially her as a guide!
C'était une tournée géniale et intéressante! Fascinant de voir ces immenses grottes - et comme nous avons réservé la visite un peu plus chère, nous avons apprécié un millésime qui était parfait. Aussi: le guide touristique (jeune femme aux cheveux noirs avec un anglais parfait) était sympathique et nous a beaucoup parlé du champagne et de son processus. Je recommande vivement la visite et surtout elle en tant que guide!

Not the biggest cave, but an excellent tour with lots of information about the process of creating champagne. After the tour a tasting of several delicious (and affordable!) champagnes.

Great tour through the cave, with lots of details on the house and the production. We then had a lovely tasting of three of their champagnes, ouside on a nice bench in their courtyard. Great visit.
