Stunning 2009 Hospices de Beaune Reds at a attractive prices....

  

On the third Sunday of November the Hospices de Beaune holds its annual wine auction. The event is steeped in history with its origins dating back to the 15th century.

 

The 2009 auction was the 149th. Around 700 barrels of wine are offered each year. They are produced from vineyards that have been donated to the Hospices over the centuries.

 

The event is both serious and fun. I attended the 2011 event, enjoyed terrific hospitality from everyone at Albert Bichot, tasted the 45 different cuvees in one morning and attended he auction. If you love Burgundy it is must-do.

 

The quality of the wines is very good and we are pleased to offer a trio of 2009's comprising three of the most popular cuvees - two Premier Crus and the Grand Cru Corton. The elevage and bottling was handled by Maison Champy. 

  

Tasting notes are by Anthony Hanson MW. All three wines are in stock for immediate delivery.

 

2009 Volnay-Santenots 1er Cru Cuvee Jehan de Massol

In Stock $99.00

Hospices Volnay Label This is the most perfect Volnay-Santenots made by the Hospices de Beaune since the 2005 vintage. The colour is very deep, impressive purple, the aromas being openly fruity, ripe and rich. Magnificent on the palate, this shows superb harmony, sweet fruitiness, succulent texture and astonishing length. The Pinot bunches from which this wine was made are amongst the smallest, with the thickest skins and lowest yields, which can be found. For concentration, harmony and silkiness, this has to be tasted to be believed.  

 

2009 Pommard 1er Cru Cuvee Dames de la Charite

In Stock $96.00

Rich, deep purple, the nose being concentrated, spicy and fresh. This is magnificently structured, with powerful, dense fruitiness which promises superb development. Tannins are dense, fully ripe, and without astringence, the finish being creamily textured and very long. A great wine.

 

2009 Corton Grand Cru Cuvee Charlotte Dumay

In Stock $135.00

Hospices Corton Label This is purple-red of medium depth, the nose showing powerful raspberry and nutmeg aromas, very appealing. On the palate, it has broad, mouth-coating structure, with luscious fruit.  Picked at perfect ripeness, towards the end of the harvest, it fermented slowly, bringing about gentle extractions of flavour and tannins. From a great vintage for Hospices de Beaune Cortons, this cuvée is a classic for mid-term aging.
