Hospices de Beaune Corton Grand Cru Cuvee Charlotte Dumay 2012 3L

Pinot Noir from Cote de Beaune, Burgundy, France

Cellar/Tasting Notes
Each year, on the third weekend of November, Beaune plays host to the world's most famous charity wine sale. Professionals, connoisseurs and wine lovers come together for festivities, the epitome of pure Burgundy tradition.

Beaune and its hospices (charitable institution) have been passing on the singular taste of the grapes of Burgundy since the 15th century. These highly sought-after wines are drunk around the world and this is largely thanks to the internationally renowned annual charity auction.

This gift to the Hospices was made in gothic lettering on parchment, in 1534. “For the cure and salvation of her soul,” the childless Charlotte Dumay, wife of the King’s Keeper of the Mint in Dijon, gave 100 ouvrées of vineyard and fallow land in the territory of Aloxe, with a house in stone.

Today, this is one of the Hospices’s longest-lived, most sumptuously structured wines. Corton-Renardes makes up 63% of the Cuvée, Corton-Bressandes the balance, the vines being planted on a total of 24 different sectors of the famous hillside.

The 2012 Hospices de Beaune wine items are currently pre-order and will arrive Fall 2014.
