2011 Volnay-Santenots 1er Cru Cuvee Gauvain

1500ml MAGNUM Normal Price $250.00

En Primeur Price $175.00

750ml bottle Normal Price $125.00

En Primeur Price $87.50

Hospices Gauvin Label The Hospices' Volnays are, in my opinion, amongst their best holdings. The Cuvee Gauvain was my pick of them in 2011. The vines are from Santenots which produces wines of style and substance with terrific ageing potential.

Anthony Hanson MW: 
In colour, this is a beautiful, purple-ruby, with very ripe, fragrant aromas, which are subtly spicy. On the palate, the wine is full and luscious, yet also shows the inimitable finesse of its great, First Growth Volnay terroir. This wine is delicately poised, all aspects being in fine harmony, but with elegance being the outstanding factor. Tannins are firmly present, to ensure harmonious ageing, the finish being impressively long and vivacious. 


2011 Corton Grand Cru Cuvee Dr Peste

1500ml MAGNUM Normal Price $319.00

En Primeur Price $223.30

750ml bottle Normal Price $159.50

En Primeur Price $111.65

Hospices Peste Label Dr Peste is invariably my pick of the Corton Grand Cru cuvees and it was again in 2011. It is a powerful wine with a classic Corton spine.

Anthony Hanson MW: This is deep garnet-purple, with roasted, densely ripe aromas, already complex. The palate is full-bodied and richly structured - more solid and tannic than Corton Cuvée Charlotte Dumay, as is often the case. The character of Corton Dr. Peste is well delineated, and the wine will prove magnificent, particularly after several years bottle-age. There is neither astringency nor bitterness, but massive complexity on the palate, showing great potential.

P.S. The price for 2011 Hospices de Beaune wines look exceedingly good when compared to what the 2012 wines could in theory cost. If you were to add 68.85% to the normal price of the 2011 Corton Cuvee Dr Peste in 750ml bottle you would have a normal price of $269.00. Our En Primeur Price for the 2011 looks very appealing at $111.65 per 750ml bottle or $223.30 per Magnum.


Unfortunately, I anticipate we will see price rises across the board for Burgundy over the next eighteen months.
