Tours & tastings

The house will open up the doors to its century-old winery, the true essence of Alfred Gratien champagne. You then head 18 metres underground to explore the house’s real treasures: more than a kilometre of cellars dug into the chalk, where more than a million bottles slumber in the darkness and silence. This tour will be followed by a visit to the prestigious wine store, a living repository of more than a century of winemaking by the Jaeger family. To round off your tour, you will explore Alfred Gratien champagnes during a guided tasting in the Boutique du Chai shop.

On your trip to Epernay, the capital of Champagne, come to the Boutique du Chai shop to taste the different champagnes that reflect the work and passion of the men and women who have been making them since 1864.
