Sword Poppin’ Champagne IN Champagne France


Your Paris tour or trip to France cannot be complete without a journey to the Champagne region. This is where they’ve made champagne for hundreds of years and where you hear all the poppin champagne corks. Enjoy your virtual tour in this champagne video.

GH Martel Champagne
It’s a 2 hour car ride from Paris to Reims and the GH Martel Champagne company. However, the trip won’t take us two hours because this champagne video starts aboard a 165mph bullet train.

Once at the Martel Cellars, we walked down a very long, old staircase that lead 25 feet under the earth in champagne cellars that were dug in the year 400AD.

Champagne Discovery
While the Martel company has out-grown this cellar, the methods remain the same. What the famous monk Dom Perignon discovered was the ability to add yeast and sugar to wine inside the bottle to facilitate a second fermentation, adding the bubbles that characterize a good champagne. “Brothers, come quickly, I’m drinking stars!” were his words upon the discovery.

Poppin Champagne
Our tour guide, Emmanuel made it very easy to create this champagne video, because he explained the process so well, which grapes are used, how the sediment is removed from bottles, and even how the cellar master prefers we drink the champagne. He even demonstrated the correct way to open a champagne bottle, and it’s not the way you think.

But the most exciting part of the champagne video was when he opened a bottle using a large knife “le sabbatier”. We were really poppin champagne bottles then! Whether it's your first trip to Paris or your third, don't forget to make this trip a part of your Paris tour. Maybe you will make your own champagne video!
