The world’s largest Champagne producer, Moët & Chandon is a must visit. While you wait for the next tour (on foot), take a look at some of the displays, which contain a wealth of historical documentation and items, including some of the oldest Champagne bottles ever found. On the way in, stop to have a look at the statue of Dom Pérignon. Look at the eyes, then ask the guide at a suitable opportunity why the statue of Dom Pérignon has slanted eyes.
