2011 Hospices de Beaune Burgundies. Final opportunity at Pre Arrival Prices

Hospices 2011 Last Chance Header

Red Wine Prices were up an incredible 68% at the 2012 Hospices Auction!

Our 2011's arrive this month and in addition to 750ml bottles we have a limited number of MAGNUMS available. 
Don't delay if you wish to buy at Pre Arrival Prices


The 2012 Hospices de Beaune auction saw record prices. White wine prices rose by an average 18.11% and red wines by a monumental 68.85%!


Our 2011 Hospices de Beaune wines arrive this month. Elevage has been done by Albert Bichot, not only the biggest buyer at the auction but also winner of both Red and White Winemaker of the Year in recent times. We have 750ml bottles and a tiny number of Magnums available. The good new is that the wines were paid for when the Australian Dollar was much stronger so the prices are very reasonable compared to what the 2012's could cost you.


Jump in and grab some of these great wines at our Pre Arrival Prices and save 15%.


2011 Volnay-Santenots 1er Cru Cuvee Gauvain

1500ml MAGNUM Normal Price $250.00

Pre Arrival Price $212.00

750ml bottle Normal Price $125.00

Pre Arrival Price $106.00

2011 Hospices Santenots 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

Pre Arrival Price $271.00

750ml bottle Normal Price $159.50

Pre Arrival Price $135.50

Hospices 2011 Corton 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. The 2011 looks great value at our Pre Arrival Price of $135.50.
