Hospices de Beaune is a former charitable almshouse in Burgundy dating from 1443. This legendary estate has a patchwork of more than 100 plots, from which 50 different wines are created.

The Hospices de Beaune Premier Cru, Cuvee Dames Hospitalieres 2017 is a grand expression of Burgundian Pinot Noir. The writers at Vivino were full of praise, including this appealing description: “The nose is packed full of youthful raspberry, red cherry and strawberry, underpinned by graphite, dry forest floor, polished oak and savoury notes. The palate is young & tangy.”

According to TotalWine.com this Hospitalieres “Offers a floral bouquet on the nose, then generous, finely tuned fruit right across the palate, balanced by subtle tannins, leading to an ethereal finish.” And after rating it 90-93, WineChronicles added, “Quite a bit of structure and aromatic opulence!” This auction lot is a magnum, so a great dinner party is pretty well guaranteed . . . .
