Reims, France the capital of champagne. The small town is a typical french town for its architecture and style, but behind wooden doors, high walls and under the pavements of the city lies a world dedicated to the most appreciated bubbles in the world. Behind one of these doors you can find the Hôtel du Marc, the former home of Madame Clicquot, and now a 6 bedroom villa opened only to the guests of the Veuve Clicquot house of champagne.
Built in 1840, it has incredibly survived through two World wars and after renovations by french designer Bruno Moinard, the villa is a beautiful place where guests can feel at home. As a guest of Vueve Clicquot it was my home for the 3 days I spent in Reims discovering the world of champagne, and a welcoming place to people who find joy in the finest things in life like design, food and wine.
The reason of this visit was to discover the new champagne of the Veuve Clicquot Rich. A new experience of serving and sipping champagne that makes it the perfect summer choice. In a next post I’ll be writing more about it, while for now I wanted to show the amazing photos of teh design in Hôtel du Marc.
