Why we love the Champagne region –  Epernay is the cutest town, with the added bonus of having miles of Champagne cellars under the sidewalks.  The statue of Dom Perignon, outside Moet, beckons you in to taste and tour.  My kind of monk!  Added bonus that you see bottles that had been kept aside for Napoleon. – Laura, LinkParis.com
