Where: Hotel & restaurant Les Avises in Avize, France

What: Lunch is served at Les Avises, a 10-room boutique hotel and restaurant owned by cult champagne producer and grower Anselme Selosse, who took over for his father Jacques Selosse in 1980. Located in the Avize region of Champagne, the estate is less than 2 hours from Paris.

Tip: Anselme is notoriously stingy with his bottles, and staying at the hotel does not guarantee he will sell you any. There is however one store in Epernay that carries Selosse at a steep discount. 📧 us for details.
