Hospices de Beaune 2004

Hospices de Beaune 2004

€89.95
Maurice Drouhin was for many years Administrator of the Hospices de Beaune and was then Vice-President of its administrative Commission from 1941 to 1955. At the same time, he ran the Beaune négociant-éleveur Joseph Drouhin. His generous donation of top vineyards constitutes one of the largest Cuvées of Beaune 1er Cru in the Domaine des Hospices (covering 2.69 ha.). 40% of the land lies in Les Avaux, 25% each being Champs Pimonts and Boucherottes, the balance Les Grèves. Bright cherry-red color. A good level of concentration both on the nose and in the palate. A well-balanced wine, sometimes discreet but with a real charm.

Description

The Hospices de Beaune is perhaps the most famous of all charity wine auctions. Its story starts in 1443, when the iconic polychromatic-tiled Hôtel-Dieu in central Beaune was built to tend the sick. Over the years, the charitable cause was given vineyards among other donations.
