The Domaine of the Hospices de Nuits was founded in 1270, even before than the one in Beaune. Same concept as the Hopsices de Beaune, this philanthropic and charitable organisation received donations of vineyards, given by rich local families in order to ensure its survival. The Domaine is smaller than the Hospices de Beaune with 12.5 hectares of Nuits St Georges village, 1ier Cru and Gevrey Chambertin. Barrels will be sold during an auction, on the 3rd Sunday of March, at the prestigious Chateau du Clos Vougeot. Buying barrels at the Hospices means participating in a cause for charity which leads to philanthropy, exceptional wines, art of living and culture in a very unique way.

Gorgeous deep red colour. This wine features an expressive fruity nose of cherry, vanilla and toasted almond aromas. On the palate, firm structure, good balance between acidity and tannins. A good wine for laying down with remarkable ageing potential.
From 3 year to 15 years.
