  • In beaune just for a weekend, we absolutely wanted to do a visit of the cellar. We decided to choose Patriarch. The home is fine but not tour and frankly disappointed. I wanted someone to explain a little organization of the cellars, the history. Same for the tasting... Person to explain the wines tasted, we are a little bit left abandoned. Not lucky, that day there was a group of a dozen people who were above all come here to drink... For € 17 per person we could expect better, even if it means less wine taste.

  • Nice place to visit but € 34 for two is a price too high in the end... the tour is interesting but the tasting does not justify the admission ticket

  • We visited late one afternoon. We were sent down into the cellars on our own. After a 200m walk through increasingly old parts of the vaulted, underground cellars, we arrived in a room with bottles on...  more »

  • 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.
