I've done this tour now so many times ( with different guests) that I could probably get a job! The tour takes about half an hour and is underground in cellars that are at 12-14 degrees C year round, so take a jumper! Despite the many visits I still hear a new anecdote or snippet of information every time.

The wines here are excellent and made even more special by seeing the caves and the process. The tour gave us a greater appreciation and the ancient structure was fascinating. A must-see for an in-depth experience for every age. It was a highlight of our trip.

Visited the Caves in March and it was a great introduction to the making of sparkling wine. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, spoke good English and as a bonus for us he had spent time working in vineyards in Australia. The tour is an opportunity for wine lovers and novices alike to appreciate not just some great wine but... More

We have visited and tasted the sparkling and still wines of this house many times before and other ones in Saumur butt always come back to this one, the tour in the cellars is a trip not to be missed. If you visit as often as U.S. It's worthwhile having a fidelity card.

We spent a late afternoon taking a tour of the caves. Did not expect to find such extensive tunnels and the history linked to it! The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the wine tasting afterwards was delightful. To think that this treat is absolutely free!

As we live locally we visit here relatively regularly, bringing friends and family and simply visiting the shop on our own to buy wine. It has to be said that if you buy more often than the average tourist then you must become a fidelity customer... They look after their regulars! Since our last visit, the tour has been upgraded...
