  • Wonderful tour, well narrated but DO NOT BUY THE WINES TO BE SHIPPED! We were there in 2014 and tasted the 2009 and 2010 white and red Premier Cru's which are made in a more "new world" style (mature earlier) and bought a case to be sent back to the states. They were shipped and I have kept them in a very good wine cellar that keeps wines at 50 to 58 degrees F. I recently( May/2019) opened one of the reds and was extremely disappointed. It was extremely thin with very little in the way of a nose, and lacking any body or taste at all. The wine was not vinegary so it not gone bad but was worst than any "2 buck chuck" my father-in-law- gets at a Trader Joe's. 2009 was considered an excellent vintage so by process of elimination it was either a fault with the shipper, the importer (hopefully no fraud was involved)or possibly the wines are just not made to be drunk after 5 years of the vintage. We also bought some Premier Cru 2010s from Chateau de Meursault as well as some Premier Cru 2009s from some Cote de Nuits producers so those might give us a clearer picture. A 9 year old bottle of supposedly Premier Cru level burgundy should be better than this! EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED. ---On the other hand I highly recommend a visit to a little wine shop in Beaune called Mon Millesime, for a vintage tasting, to find out how fabulous older(35-15 years) Burgundys (both red and white ) can really taste!
  • An interesting tour that gives a very good introduction to Burgundy wine. Chateau and grounds are very impressive. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, and spoke good English. The cellars are very impressive and the tasting at the end was very enjoyable. Would have scored higher but the wine was expensive, considering the tour was paid-for and you are visiting the cellar door.
  • This chateau has an astonishing cellar of felt-like a square kilometer in the underground you should make the guided tour through. Thousands of wines from more than 50 years and hundreds of barrels. The following wine tasting could even convince me as a red wine fetishist that there can be awesome white wines. Definitely worth a recommendation!
  • Impressive cellars and great explanations by our tour guide. Costs €26 with 9 wines to taste.
  • Very impressive cellar! Wines for tasting were a hit and miss unfortunately.
