France's finest wines!

Planning to come to Paris for a trip? Whether you're a first timer, or a frequent visitor, it doesn't matter. Go to the Caves Augé with some french cheese and a "baguette tradition" from midday to 7pm. Sit just right in front of the caves Augé (around a table set on the sidewalk and let them choose a natural wine that is going to taste perfectly with the cheese you brought). It doesn't matter if it rains or snow... you're going to feel parisian at its fullest and will remember that special moment for the rest of your life.

A highlight
Aug 2016 • Couples
We stepped in with a wow. What a beautiful shop filled to the brim with wine from everywhere. The staff were very helpful. Don't think you can go in here if you are in a hurry though. The staff want to give you an experience and their attention. As a couple of Aussies with limited wine knowledge and only a French village as our starting point, we were guided to 6 bottles within our price range to take back to Australia. They were packaged safely for us. The decor is a step back in time. We will return here and highly recommend.

Fun relaxed wine experience.

If you're lucky enough to be in Paris when there's a wine tasting going on here (they usually happen on a Saturday) it's an opportunity to experience some casual exploration of wine. We were able to taste a variety of reds, whites, and roses from the Loire region of France on the sidewalk in front of the shop. If you step inside it's a really neat little space with wine lining the walls and any other space available.

One of the best!!!
Dec 2013 • Solo
In search of a specific vitner, this cave was suggested as the place to find what I was in search of (Gramenon, a woman vitner near Valreas, Cotes du Rhone, red and white and while bio...not my first or last choice... it is one of the most unique from this area of highly sought after reds).

From the street, even the front of the cave is an eye catcher. More to come after entering: It is steeped in old world charm with a twist of cache that come from old the warmth of old patina woods, a cashier in a booth, wine stacked floor to ceiling, ladders going up to the very highest top shelves.

It is crowded and stuffed with bottles, making it cumbersome to maneuver when too many clients are there at the same time. Try to visit at off-peak hours, just to savor the space and selections without elbowing other shoppers. The vast selection is feast for the eyes and hard to take in during a single visit.

As one might expect, sales people are experts. They know their wines and are generous and patient, readily willing to share expertise. I wanted a beaujolais with character and some complexity. Because the salespeople know Gramenon, they went immediately to a winner...a top flight, delicious Morgon. I would never have disovered this without their knowledge and expertise.

Service is fast, efficient, pleasant, welcoming and always helpful. There is nothing intimidating here, except the vastness of selections. Prices are fair and the selection crosses all ranges of the pocket book.

As a foodie, I can't imagine visiting Paris without stopping here. This cave is a must if wine is on the "to do" list. The kind of place that lives one filled up both inside and out.

great wine shop
Dec 2013 • Solo
I visited Le Caves Auge on a recommendation that it is one of the best in Paris and after my visit I have to agree. The staff were friendly, very helpful, and happy to provide recommendations. The shop is old and has a ton of character, which adds to the visit - the wine is stacked to the ceiling. From what I could tell the wines were priced fair and there is a great selection of mid-range wines. A great selection of the pricey stuff too! Upon their recommendation I walked out with a Domaine des Espiers Gigondas that was wonderful. If you are looking for nice, unique wines while in Paris this shop is definitely worth a stop.

Wonderful-Recommend it

The last reviewer was obviously lost. Le Caves Auge was right there on Haussman as it was supposed to be. The young man who helped me was knowledgeable and very friendly though they would not let me take pictures. I bought two bottles to take home to my husband for Father's Day. Felt very much like I was in France, not just anywhere. They did not have nice things to say about California wines however! Ha.

Heaven for the wine lover
Jan 2013 • Couples
I came in here on the recommendation of a few friends who told me this was the best wine shop in Paris. The selection is vast and especially strong in natural wines. I picked up several bottles that are never imported into the US to bring back with me. The pricing is excellent and so is the service. The store opened in 1850 and it returns a rustic charm about it. This was be a must stop from now on each time I return to Paris.

Wine Proust and Paris
Nov 2011 • Couples
The wine world is dynamic - it's constantly changing but Caves Auge 116 bd Haussmann, nearest metro Saint Augustin (9) is a wine shop that never changes - quality all the time.One pilgrimage I always make before leaving Paris is to this end of Haussmann far away from the hustle & bustle of Galeries Lafayette and all the chic stores up the road. Auge is one of the oldest wine stores in Paris, established in 1850 and is one of the most unique in France. It can be a little intimidating in that virtually every square inch of floor space is packed with a bewildering array of exotic vintage wine from all regions of France, the Loire Valley being particularly well
represented. Free fun wine tastings are a regular feature on the pavement running alongside the Caves. Marcel Proust was a regular customer here. It is one of the few stores in Paris that stocks my favourite liquur the sublime Basque Izarra. A must stop for wine lovers!
