Way back in 1443, the iconic polychromatic-tiled Hôtel-Dieu (Hospices de Beaune) in central Beaune was built to take care of the sick and since Guillemette Levernier made the first gift of vineyards to them in 1457, this tradition has continued for five centuries. The estate currently has around 60 hectares which the majority are used for Pinot Noir production, with the rest used for Chardonnay in which around 85% are premier crus and grand crus. They have entrusted 22 winemakers to produce wines and sell the their productions at an auction on every third Sunday of November, and is now probably the most famous wine charity auction in the world. All proceeds are invested back into the hospital and to conserve the beautiful Hôtel Dieu.
We are proud to offer two barrels of this for your consideration, in which you will be able to personalize the label with a minimum order of only 72 bottles. These wines are matured by Joseph Drouhin which has earned a very high reputation among drinkers worldwide. Drouhin is also actively engaged in the charity wine auctions in bidding the barrels as well as assisting barrels bidders to mature the wines in their cellar in Beaune. Early reports suggest that 2017 will be a fantastic vintage for both red and white in Burgundy. According to Vinous, the 2017 reds have “a lot of charm, will give a lot of pleasure and will surprise many with their longevity” (Neal Martin); and the whites are “fresh, pure stone, orchard and citrus fruits and their charm and easy digestibility” (Stephen Tanzer).
It would be a fabulous option if you had any special event that happened in 2017 as a perfect memorabilia like weddings, the birth of your baby, or any anniversary!
