  • This was a very nice chateau. The self guided tour was actually very pleasant. I love old cellars and seeing dusty bottles of goodness is really cool. The self paced tasting was pretty incredible. There were attendants if you had questions, but they let you "taste" as much as you wanted. A little dangerous for Americans but we kept it classy...mostly. We did talk to a sommelier about wine and ended up doing a private tasting with some very cool Irish folks. The wines were waaaaaayyyy out of our price league, but it was an awesome experience. We did buy a pricey bottle for our 1 year old to open on her 21st. She better enjoy it! Overall this place is classy, nice, ancient, and not too stuffy. Highly recommend it for the value.
  • Read bad reviews and almost skipped this. Very glad we didn't! Wine was okay but the staff were awesome and we got pretty drunk for €15 euro. Caves are very cool to wonder. If you're nice the staff might bring out some special stuff for you ;)
  • Very nice experience visiting the caves and seeing where they store their wine. The tour is independent and doesn't I get much into their process for making wine. They have a very wide variety of burgandy wine should you want to taste and possibly bring some home.
  • I would give 0 stars if I could... Yes, the caves are lovely but the wines are a proof that not all wines from this area are good. You are better off going to one of the many wine shops and enjoy a tasting there.
  • Mystic with so much history... had a great Danish tour guide who explained things so well.
