  • Cellars of 15,000 M2... Imagine! The price of € 17 for the tour may seem high but quality tasting is real and leave with his offered wine tasters is always fun... We also leave with a few bottles but happy shopping! The km of corridors of cellars are impressive!

  • Wonderful visit of cellars under the city of Beaune. Very nice assortment of wines at the tasting. It has been three times that I visit these wineries (roughly every 2 years) the reception is always at the top. The choice of wines to taste is always nice (there are for everyone). We had the privilege of being received in caves by a charming Danish (it's all just great). These tips, its professionalism, its touch of humour (I say BRAVO). We will be back. Pictures show the tasted wines.

  • You can walk through the cellars by yourself and around every corner there's a digital guide with all the relevant information. About the history, wine making and Patriarch family. We loved it.. and b...  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.
