Other Info:
The Hospices de Beaune or Hôtel-Dieu de Beaune is a former charitable almshouse in Beaune, France. It was founded in 1443 by Nicolas Rolin, chancellor of Burgundy, as a hospital for the poor and needy. Every year, a wine auction is held to fund this worthwhile charity. The charity auction been arranged annually since 1851, taking place on the third Sunday in November amid a three day festival devoted to the food and wines of Burgundy called Les Trois Glorieuses. The charity is preceded by a black tie dinner at the Clos de Vougeot on day one and followed by the lunch La Paulée de Meursault on day three. The Domaine des Hospices de Beaune is a non-profit organisation which owns around 61 hectares (150 acres) of donated vineyard land, much of this classified Grand and Premier cru.

Lively floral notes of violets and red berries joing a high concentration of minerally raspberry fruit. Elegant, intense and structured, this has deep earthy characters and complex red and black berries. The tannins are balanced by bright acidity that lead to a long and satisfying finish.
