HOSPICES DE BEAUNE Beaune 1er Cru "Rousseau Deslandes" 2014
Wine Region : Burgundy - France
Grape : Pinot Noir
Tasting notes : Rich mid purple colour offers a promise of a fine mix of red and black fruit, lively and appealing nose. A beaune cuvee that always offers a suave texture.
About the winery : Hospices Civiles de Beaune is a former charitable almshouse founded in 1443 in the town of Beaune. It is now a modern hospital, with the original buildings serving as a museum. Since 1859, a charity wine auction has raised funds for the hospital with the wines produced being released under the Hospice's umbrella label. The wines are made at the Hospices winery from around 60 hectares (150 acres) of vineyard holdings which have been donated to the charity over many decades. Much of these are in premier and grand cru vineyard sites including Clos de la Roche, Mazis-Chambertin and Corton.
