Notes

The Hospices de Beaune at the Hôtel-Dieu was founded in 1443 and is regarded as the world’s first modern hospital. Today, the iconic Burgundian building bears name to the important charity wine auction held in November each year. The auction offers unique parcels of enchanting Burgundies and also provides an indication of global fine wine prices.

We are delighted to offer a stash of incredible, mature Burgundies bought by the late Paul Bouchard during his partnership with Peter Finlayson. The five wines are delightfully mature and offer a haunting array of flavour and savoury intrigue. They are all composed and ethereal with different levels of power and finesse.

Due to the nature of Burgundy, its intricate vineyard parcels and small domaines, vintage wines are extremely difficult to find. It is only when you drink mature Burgundies that you can fully understand why Burgundy has risen to such heights. Having been stored at Bouchard Finlayson since release, these offer an unbelievable opportunity to drink mature Burgundy at today’s release prices. Fill your boots!

Each Hospices de Beaune wine is dedicated to the characters that shaped Burgundy. They are all produced from the 60ha owned by the Hospices.

Tasting notes:
'This little hamlet north-west of Beaune produces excellent value, textured reds. Not surprisingly, this is the most mature of the line-up. Decant it off the sediment and give it 30 minutes to unfold. It is delicate and closed at first, blossoming into a grand old lady with time. Perfumed, soft and savoury, there is a good acidity that carries a pure, sweet-fruited finish. Wonderful balance and fantastic drinking. Drink now to 2020.' – Roland Peens (April 2018)

Comments by Hospices de Beaune:
'Denis-Antoine Fouquerand and his wife Claudine left legacies to the Hospices in 1832 and 1844. The wine coming from the Basses Vergelesses was withdrawn from the Cuvée in 2009 in favour of finer vines in Les Talmettes, dating from 1965 and 1966, Gravains, planted in 1958 and Serpentières in 1997. The Cuvée is made up of some of the most reputed vineyards of Savigny, on the slopes facing south.'
