Reims—a day in Champagne

A beautiful gothic cathedral. Marc Chagall designed the stained glass installed in 1974 in the axis of the apse.

Cart installation at the Pommery Estate.

Behind the shopping carts a typical Remoise house. Most of the city was destroyed during the 1st world war and rebuilt in the 1920's.

The Pommery Estate contains 18 kilometres of cellars and gallo-roman chalk pits, where lay down 20 million bottles at 30 meters underground at a constant temperature of 10 degrees Celsius.
