I am living in Paris for the next year and am hoping to take a drive to Champagne one of these days. I want to visit a few small grower producers in the region. I am passionate about drinking RM champagne but know very little about it besides what I have read in Terry Thiese's catalouges. Im considering visitng Gimmonet or Aubrey Fils. I would be spending 1 or 2 days at the most.
Does anyone have any advice, suggestions, contacts, or otherwise useful information on my planned excursion?Is it neccesary to make bookings at vineyards in Champagne?
