What a great experience. We are a French/Anglo couple living in the Champagne region of France and making champagne for a living. We know about champagne but not so much about Burgundy wines... visiting La Cave de L'ange Gardien changed that for us. If you go to Beaune you must do this tasting. It's free, but it shouldn't be. So... More

We went to La Cave de l'Ange Gardien on the recommandation of our B&B hostess when we asked her where to buy and taste great Bourgogne wines. After a day's walk in Beaune, we went with my wife to the Cave with the intention to buy some wines... As we came in we were invited to join another couple who... More

I've been to a fair share of wine tasting in Italy, California and France and this by far has been the best. We weren't told what the wine was or the price but just had to taste and rate it based on what we liked, in order to remove outside influences. It was a unique way of tasting it and... More

I had a blind tasting of 14 wines with Pierre last week. He is both charming and informative. There were only four of us, and he patiently walked us through each of the wines and taught us how to appreciate their qualities. In addition to being very knowledgeable, Pierre has a dry wit that put everyone at their ease, and... More

If you are in Beaune, then this has to be at the top of your list of things to do. Whether you know a little or a lot about wine Pierre and his lovely wife Nicole will guide through how to taste...did you know that we have two nostrils that can pick up different scents...and colour....to the complexities of aging...

We visited Pierre and Nicole as part of a tour - they put on a spectacular tasting on very short notice. Both are extremely friendly, passionate and knowledgable about Burgundy and wine more generally. We left, four hours later, feeling as though we'd known them for years. We can't wait for our next trip!

We reached the place in an afternoon without a reservation for wine tasting. Pierre approached us and knew that we are in the rush to Paris. He was very friendly and chatted with us to understand what kind of wine we are looking for. Nicole then let us have a quick blind tasting of 13 different wines. We were very... More

Wonderful place to visit and spend 2-3 hours tasting wine and learning about the French wine culture. The owner was incredibly knowledgeable and spoke English for our group. He said reservations were required, but all was required was us telling him we wanted to come later that day. We did a blind tasting of 16 different wines, all of which... More

The afternoon wine tasting with Nicole and Pierre was wonderful. When I came in for my appt, Pierre was very welcoming (it was just me at first, then a couple joined us a but later). The tasting lasted 3 hours (and it's free!). Nicole and Pierre (husband and wife) went back and forth leading us through flights of blind tastings.... More

Upon arriving at our B & B in Beaune our host recommended a wine tasting at La Cave de l'Ange and made an appointment for us. Our tasting was only us and another couple and was a blind tasting. I have never done a blind tasting and it was a wonderful experience. It was a very relaxed atmosphere, not rushed... More
