Extinguished for several decades
At the top of Mont Rizan, in Verzenay, a lighthouse stands amid a sea of vines. It is 82 ft high (25 m) and consists of 101 steps. Joseph Goulet had it built in 1909 to promote his champagne wines. The lighthouse comprises a tavern and a restaurant that used to host celebrations. The First World War put an end to this success, and the lighthouse went out for several decades until its renovation in 1999. An eco-museum adjoins it and allows understanding the characteristics and specificities of the Champagne terroirs.
