Miles of Chalk Caves Where Champagne Ages

Bottles of Champagne sleep blissfully in a 13th-century wine cave below Taittinger headquarters in Reims. These bottles are in the process of being "riddled" by hand, the process of little turns and tilts that slowly shifts the sediment to the neck of the bottle so it can be removed. The miles of tunnels here were originally dug in the chalk by wine-making monks. You can tour the amazing network of caves - and taste, too, of course!
