  • I visited these truly impressive cellars twice in the interval of thirty years and I have seen that the tasting had been very significantly reduced, which certainly isn't a bad as the wines are mediocre. This dear visit may apply only to tourists accustomed to mediocrity and who are satisfied!

  • We just happened to walk by and ended up visiting the caves and trying wines for 2h. Wonderfull experience and very knowledgeable service.  more »
  • A wonderful place full of history, the visit begins with the discovery of historic site eventually many wine tasting in the cellars of the Patriarch. Accompaniment by Mireille the winemaker really made the difference in this discovery. A caring person that brings you all the wine culture and you marvel. A big thank you

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
