Mercier Reviews & Ratings
The entertainment here is so good and the story so amazing which makes this place so worth to visit. The marketing works at least for my taste. I enjoyed every minute of the show. We started here or visit of Epernay. We received the great reception and kindest introduction possible. This made us appreciate the whole champagne business. Thanks a lot for keeping great Mercier invention into the future. I definitely recommend visiting and taking a tour.
The tour is not as good as I remember from my first visit some 15 years ago and shop now sells only their champagne. It used to sell a wide range of branded goods like ties, umbrellas, &c. Only the basic Champagne is included in the tasting.
Great place to learn about the history of Mercier and of champagne. Very informative and the English guide was impressive. Entertaining multimedia presentation plus you get to taste the champagne as well. Bring a sweater or light jacket as the underground tour of the cellars can be a bit chilly. If you plan your visit well, there are many lovely cafes in Épernay to have lunch or dinner as well. Sante!
The tour with the train is wonderful. That followed by a glass of mercier champagne was excellent. Loved the story of the making of the huge champagne vat en how mercier wanted to bring champagne to the public. Very friendly and helpful staff.
The tour is great and gives a good overview of what this house is aiming for which is to produce mass market champagne.
