Royal Champagne – Epernay, France – Baglioni Hotels2800
In the heart of a vineyard, this former, recently refurbished coach house – one of Napoleon’s favourite stopovers is the perfect base from wich to explore the glorious Champagne maisons. No need to travel the region, all you need to do is visit the wine cellar here which boasts no fewer than 220 exceptional brut and rosé vintages and crus. The best place to taste them is on the terrace overlooking the vines which extend as far as the eye can see. Intoxicating.
