Underground with a temperature of 12 degrees and high humidity, so wear warm clothes! Includes Cremant tasting and younget to keep the champagne glasses. Informative guide and very interesting.

Our timing was unfortunate as no tour was available when we arrived. We did do some tasting though and came away with several bottles of Cremant, Rosé and dry which unfortunately have now all been consumed. Very light and fresh.

An amazing reveal as you walk through the corridor entry to this superb cellar. The scale is impressive and the Chablis and Mure well worth the visit.

Cool wine cellar in a cave. Definitely worth the stop to learn a bit more about how wine is made, and to see the literally millions of bottles stacked up in the dark, slightly spooky caves while it ferments. At the end of the tour...More

This wine cellar was very different and quite interesting. You drive into the caves with your car and all the wine tasting and tour is in the caves. The tour includes a walk around the caves with a guide explaining the wine making process. Very...More

We went to Les Caves on our barge trip and moored at the jetty below the caves. It was a steep 5 - 10 minute walk up to the cave but well worth it when we got there. There are regular tours of the cave...More
