Excellent tour by Jean Manuel!! He really cared about educating us and helping us understand so many things we didn’t know! He was kind, funny and thoughtful - it was a great tour by the man who runs the business - really a great personal touch! Thanks Jean Manuel!
Jean-Manuel Jacquinot gave the tour himself, it was perfect. I highly recommend their 2008 vintage, it was fantastic. We enjoyed Jean-Manuel’s passion for his family business and his craft. Very personal touch on the tour and he even offered to give us a ride to the train station. Make sure to visit while you are in Epernay.
Jose Manuel was very helpful and informative. We enjoyed our tour and tasting. Look forward to finding it in CA
It was so fun getting a behind-the-scenes look at this boutique, family-owned champagne house. The winemaker was kind and generous with his time, walking us through the production process and the cellars. The tasting was great, too. Highly recommended!
Fantastic experience. Being a small boutique Champagne house, the owner Jean-Manuel conducted the tour and tastings. His explanation of Champagne making, tour of the caves and hands on demonstration were suburb. I would venture to say his Champagnes are far superior to those of the big houses.
Monsieur Jean-Manuel Jacquinot was fabulous in conveying to us the process of creating champagne and his direction to keep fresh and modern; so generous with his time and conversation and a wonderful tasting to follow. Any one visiting Épernay should arrange a visit to this small house.
Fantastic visit to this house, the host was so welcoming and generous. A must see.
