Woodland wonders: Autumn in France's Champagne region
Issued on: Modified:
With its vineyards and knotted beech trees, France's Champagne region conceals many treasures. In Fleury-la-Rivière, Thibault produces a champagne with iodised notes because of a Lutetian-era sea that used to flow underneath. His father Patrice, an archaeologist, digs the soil which is full of shells. The nearby Forest of Verzy is also full of mystery. It's this wild and sublime nature that gives such a unique taste to the Champagne region's bubbles. FRANCE 24 takes you to discover it.
