Champagne Cruise on the Seine

Can you think of anything more romantic than crusing down the Seine past the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame while sipping a glass of Champagne? I don’t think so. Maurice and I took the Champagne Cruise offered by the wine tasting specialists at O Chateau in Paris.

We got to sit in a private room at the front of the boat and three different kinds of champagne were offered, all from small houses in the Champagne region of France. The first the best known variety, a Champagne Brut, the second a rose champagne and the third, a sweeter one called a demi-sec.

They were all delicious and Olivier, the owner of O Chateau, was there to tell us as much as we wanted to know about each one. It was a glorious way to spend a sunny evening in Paris.

  1. I’ve been blogs-dropping for awhile and love your posts. I grew up mostly in France and visited again last summer with my high school grad daughter. These pictures are fabulous! Brings back many memories. . .

  2. ooooh, Yeah! This is tres romantic!
    It all sounded lovely and I could almost feel those bubbles tickling my nose. There’s nothing like French champagne!
    I take it your back in Paris?

  3. True jet-set material. From home in Provence to champagne cruise in Paris. Sounds like a fairy tale!

  4. This seems so idyllic! I must admit that I quite often do sunset cruises in Cape Town, but you’ve made me positively jealous nevertheless. Thanks for a fab blog – I’ve also posted a link to it at the trivago travel community of which I am a member.
    Greetings,

  5. This looked like great fun on a lovely Summer’s evening. The French certainly know how to enjoy life…….with bubbly thrown in too!!
