The Champagne house Legrand-Latour is located in the Marne Valley, in France, in the heart of the Champagne wine region. The Champagne House invites you to discover its champagnes and the Cave aux Coquillages. For four generations, the Maison de Champagne Legrand-Latour has been developing champagnes by applying the latest techniques and innovating where possible with respect for traditions.
The Maison de Champagne Legrand-Latour’s estate has a fossil-rich soil. This has a strong influence on the development of their Champagnes thanks to a combined geological and oenological approach. A well-orchestrated method that wonderfully helps to emphasize the mineral expression of the champagnes produced on the estate.
Maison de Champagne Legrand-Latour welcomes you in a friendly atmosphere where viticulture and geology are the ubiquitous themes. In addition to selling champagne and visiting the Cave aux Coquillages, Maison de Champagne Legrand-Latour has a bed and breakfast on its estate. The three cozy rooms are decorated in an old champagne farm and are designed to welcome champagne lovers. Each room has comfortable basic facilities such as a private bathroom and toilet.
Maison de Champagne Legrand-Latour has three rooms that are available all year round. They have a quiet and traditional decor. A living room is available to guests where you can relax and enjoy your time. Breakfast is included in the room rate.
The Maison de Champagne Legrand-Latour vines grow on the slopes of the Marne Valley in the heart of the Champagne wine region. The main grape varieties on the domain are the Pinot Meunier, the Pinot Noir and the Chardonnay.
The Maison de Champagne Legrand-Latour invites its visitors to explore La Cave aux Coquillages, or the “shell cellar”, and to follow them in the footsteps of a paleontologist. The Cave aux Coquillages in Fleury-la-Rivière is a well-known fossil site in this region and takes you back more than 45 million years in time. At that time, the Champagne region was just a huge tropical beach. This unique combination of oenology and geology allows you as a visitor to better understand the link of how the champagne bottoms, with their impressive remains, have the special feature of being able to offer you such delicious champagne.
The tour of the shell- and champagne cellar takes about an hour. Young and old will be impressed by the “Campanile giganteum”, an abundantly present star shell in the champagne cellar of the Maison de Champagne Legrand-Latour. This shell can be between 40 and 60 cm in length. After this great visit, you may enjoy a delicious champagne tasting of the Maison Legrand-Latour at their Champagne bar. Here you will also have the opportunity to discuss all your questions about their champagne and the vineyard.
