History

In 1645, Antoine Rousseau and Barbe Deslandes founded the Hôpital de la Sainte-Trinité, later known as the Hospice de la Charité. It was joined to the Hôtel-Dieu to form the Hospices de Beaune at the time of the Revolution. Its rôle has evolved with time. Initially, it welcomed orphans after plague epidemics; today it is an old people’s home. Les Cent Vignes with the majority of its vines dating between 1944 and 1958 is at the heart of this Cuvée (60% of the plantings). Close to Pommard, Les Montrevenots represents the balance of the Cuvée, with all its vines planted prior to 1966.

Corton Grand Cru
Cuvée Docteur Peste 2018

PDF



Region: Côte de Beaune
Village: Aloxe-Corton
Level: Grand Cru
AOC: Corton Grand Cru
Grapes: Pinot Noir
Color: red

Tasting

A very solid dense purple black colour indicates a wine of considerable intensity. The fruit is luxurious in quality, definitely showing some black-fruit notes, and full enough to match the firm structure of the finish. This is a powerful Corton with a real cellaring potential.

Food matching

The wine’s power deserves a cuisine on a par: beautiful grilled red meats, game or strong cheese.

History

Jean-Louis Peste was a doctor at the Hospices de Beaune for 30 years in the mid-19th century. His daughter, Baroness du Baÿ, bequeathed a vast estate to the Hôtel-Dieu in his memory, in 1924. Made from 89% fully mature, or very old vines, this Cuvée comes principally (52%) from Chaumes et Voierosses, which is south and south-west-facing land. These vines were planted 4 times between 1976 and 1985. Les Bressandes, whose oldest vines date from 1940, with Les Grèves bring complexity, richness and balance to this Cuvée.

Traditionally, this fine Cuvée of Beaune Premier Cru opens the sale. It is named for the lady nurses who have tended the sick of the Hospices since its foundation in 1443. Furthermore, several nurses left important legacies. These sisters originated from Saint-Omer, in northern France, and did their training at the Hospice of Valenciennes, which lies just within France’s border today with Belgium. The wine is made entirely from Premiers Crus vineyards, mainly Les Bressandes (no vines being younger than 1985), La Mignotte and Les Teurons.
