We had met Christopher (co-owner of La Vigne du Roy) on a previous trip to Champagne, and I was very happy to ask him to help me once again with a full day itinerary for six people.
Chris took into consideration my request to focus on Growers in the Montagne de Reims, and include yet another fabulous lunch at Le Grand Cerf.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable day wandering through villages and vineyards visiting Louis de Sacy, Paul Bara and Nicolas Maillart.
Chris is thorough, knowledgeable, gracious and an interesting man. He has established close relationships with a large number of growers and understands the Champagne region intimately. Despite this, he will never force his own preferred growers upon you, and he is happy to accommodate left of field requests with interest and good humour.
There is a rough schedule, and Chris is flexible with timing (but you don’t want to be late for lunch!) and he will most definitely not cut your day short!
I would highly recommend La Vigne du Roy, and if you’re not sure about where you want to go just let Chris make the decisions. You won’t be disappointed.
