  • Living so close to Napa, I was surprised by how different a winery visits was here. The caves are super extensive. There are old bottles of wine everywhere. I just loved the feel of it. As for the tas...  read more »
  • A nice visit in this immense and endless maze of galleries in which you would happily lock up, all with multiple tasting well illustrating all of the Burgundy Vineyards. Choice of wines to taste. Sommeliers present on the course will guide you in your tasting and guide you by their good advice when shopping. In short: to make absolutely

  • The extensive caves (cellars) were interesting, with thousands of dust-covered bottles from all over Burgundy covering well over 100 years. Use a cell phone flashlight to read the signs in the dark corners locked behind the iron bars. The price (17 euro per person) covers the self-guided tour of the caves and a self-pour tasting using small metal tasting cups (yes, you can just pour extra if you like, though there are lots of wines, so take it easy). The wines range from Burgundy to Premier Cru (3 white, about 15 red, 2 sparkling), so there are plenty of opportunities to match your particular tastes and budget. They also have tastings of crème de cassis, crème de framboise, brandy, and a fourth liquor in the wine shop at the end of the tour. The staff speak excellent English and are very helpful but not overbearing.
  • Neat to go see the caves, which are expansive. The staff were friendly too, offering my wife and mother free roses (we were there on Valentine's Day). The wine wasn't as impressive as some of the other places we visited in Burgundy. Perhaps most interesting was the tasting process, which was self-guided. If you're in it just for booze then jackpot, but for those of us trying to learn about the wines, you didn't get nearly as much out of the experience this way.
  • love this place. the wine tour cost a bit expensive though. during wine tour, you can have free wine tasting by yourself. there were at least 10 wines i can have a tasting. the tour takes around 2 hours (according to the manager). but for me, just 40~50 min (perhaps i was too hurry) they have good wines too.
  • Great visit. Loved the original history of the structure & the time capsule. Much of the self-guided tour is walking through caves. 3/4 of the way through is a 13 wine tasting, with pour your own. Collect the bottles during the tasting & once upstairs...don't forget to taste the casis & brandy. A great value for the cost.
  • Worst tasting wine I personally have ever had.
