Pierre spent about 4 hours taking the two of us through an extensive tasting of whites and reds which was enormously helpful in learning more about the classification of French wines, and appreciating the differences in chardonnay and pinot noir in different locations, soils, microclimates and vintages. He did this through blind tastings which demanded us to identify the changing... More

I love my wine and learning from new regions. Pierre was fantastic with humour and great wine knowledge. I learnt a great deal. The tasting went for over 4 hours and it was a small group of 4. Great fun learning about wine but more importantly, Burgundy wines. Everyone should do this tasting.

This was the highlight of 4 wonderful days in Burgundy. A tasting that was scheduled to last 2 hours stretched to four and half hours of enormous pleasure. We tasted a total of 17 wines which in itself was a great experience. However, what really made this experience really stand out was the genuine passion for her subject shown by... More

Visited the Cave 2 years ago and had an excellent experience. The Cave has been closed for health reasons, but has re-opened. We didn't have time for a tasting, but the format appears to be the same. Allow 2 1/2 hours.

We spent a couple of hours doing a blind wine tasting with Pierre just a few days ago and it was a highlight of the week spent in the Beaune area. Pierre is knowledgeable and witty, while being hero us with his pouring. We sampled over 18 wines and a bit of cremant to boot.

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

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...
