How it works: simplicity, service, expertise

  • The process starts with a discussion with Jean-David Camus, your personal guide. Having understood your requirements, he will take you through the main steps in the process and, in particular, help you to select the ideal wine from among the 51 wines up for auction.
  • Our goal:  to make the purchase of a barrel very simple. There are no hidden extras, the price includes: the hammer price, auctioneer’s fees, the barrel, fees for ageing and bottling. Everything is included, from the hammer price to the bottling  after ageing, as well as the customization of the labels with your name or your company’s name. In short, everything except shipping.
  • Your bespoke auction plan sets out the maximum hammer price for a barrel at the auction. There will be no nasty surprises: if the agreed hammer price is exceeded, we do not make the purchase and we refund your deposit. If, at the auction, we purchase below the agreed ceiling price (which is our objective!), we will, of course, reflect the reduction according to our price list.
  • You are not obliged to, but you can come to Beaune for the auction and enjoy this unforgettable event in the company of Albert Bichot. With festivities taking place in the streets of Beaune and private tastings of wine  wines in our medieval cellars, you will enjoy the Albert Bichot Hospices de Beaune Experience to the full.
  • After the auction, we take care of everything! Our  winemaker will carefully age your wine in our cellars for 12 to 18 months to bring out its full potential. You are, of course, also welcome to come and visit us during this ageing period to learn from those who are masters of the craft and who would be delighted to talk to you about their skills and expertise. You can also make the most of our connections within the small and intimate Burgundy wine world to ensure that your wine-themed stay is unforgettable.
  • We can also create a bespoke experience for you or your company, combining wine-themed activity and more peaceful moments to turn your visit into a memory that will last a lifetime.
  • Around 18 months after the auction, your very own Hospices wines are ready for shipping and we can of course look after this. What happens to your wine after that is up to you!
