The Domaine of the Hospices de Beaune is a ‘winemaking hospital’ and 5 centuries of vineyard legacies. It all started in 1457 when Jean Guillotte le Verrier made a donation of vines to the “Hotel Dieu” (hospital). Making a donation of vines was a way for families/patients to thank the institution. The wines of the Hospices de Beaune (referred to as “Cuvee”) often bear the name of the family who donated the plots of vines. Today the estate covers 60 hectares of which 85% are Premier Cru and Grand Cru. All the Domaine des Hospices wines are sold during an auction on the 3rd weekend of November every year.

The palate is a full-bodied and creamy texture with dense red fruits. The quality of the tannins is exceptionally fine with a spectacular mouth coating length.
