'This is riper than the 2001 but shows a similar complexity and depth. The nose is rich, offering dark fruit, smoke and black olive. It is lush and round with a lower acidity, offering amazing drinkability and joy. Decant for 30 minutes and enjoy. Drink to 2022.' – Roland Peens (Apr 2018)

'A Squire and Counsellor-Secretary of the King of France, Hugues Bétault saved the Hôtel-Dieu from ruin when wars and epidemics were raging in the XVIIth Century. He had a light and airy infirmary built and acquired land that was transformed into gardens and a vegetable plot. After his disappearance, his brother Louis made in turn several generous donations to the Hospices. This Premier Cru Cuvée is made up of nearly 40% Beaune-Grèves, planted in 1961. It also includes a quarter hectare of Beaune Clos des Mouches Premier Cru, planted in 1955.' – Hospices de Beaune
