A bit overwhelmed by choice we were advised to go to Bouchard Pere et fils. We were taken as a group of two through the cellars of the 1500's chateau and learned SO much from our intelligent friendly guide Elian. For a young man he has acquired a depth of knowledge and the ability to impart it fully in good... More

Fascinating tour of the facility and the amazing wine cellars. We had a private tour and end with a wine tasting.

I have found the stereotype of rude, aloof French people to be very untrue. I have found warm, helpful, accepting and interesting people everywhere...except here. We arrived a couple minutes late for a tour and they refused to allow us to join, saying the tour was in the tasting room. When we got there, the man told us he didn't... More

The tour of the Chateau and the cellars was interesting, but the tasting was the main attraction at this visit. The Bouchard wines are a little pricey but worth an occasional splurge. A knowledgeable guide presented us with 6 tastings of various quality levels, including a grand cru. No pressure sales at the end. The tour costs 16 euro so... More

I went to Bouchard because it is one of the oldest wine maker in Burgundy. 19€ for the cellar visit and 6 wines tasting. It was disappointing both on the amount of info you get when visiting and the quality of the wines you taste. For a few more € you get more for your money in Meursault. I will... More

The place is certainly worth seeing but I prefer the sightseeing in Le Patriarche or le Chateau de Mersault cellars. They are certainly more impressive though if you are a wine freak you should not miss Bouchard et Fils nor Bouchard Aine et Fils - both are interesting enough but if you do not have much time in Beaune, I...

We did the tour and were pleasantly surprised. It was both entertaining and educational (for us wine enthusiasts) so this may be interesting even if you know a lot about Burgundy wines. The tour is extensive and the history of the place and of the family was a surprisingly interesting. Good value for money. The wine tasting was definitely worth... More

Bouchard Pere et Fils is located in the nice centre of Beaune,and organizes daily guided tours in their cellars and provides information on the Bouchard family and the production of Bourgogne wine. You can choose to have the tour in French or English (see the website for exact times). At the end of the tour, nice wine tasting. We were... More
