FORGOT YOUR DETAILS?

A WINE-MAKING HOSPITAL FOUNDED IN 1270 AND A PRESTIGIOUS WINE ESTATE AT THE HEART OF COTE DE NUITS Founded in 1270, the Domaine des Hospices de Nuits-Saint-Georges is a wine-making hospital. Less famous but not less prestigious than the Hospices de Beaune, this top-level estate in Côte de Nuits sells its harvest on auction every third Sunday in March.

Nuits-Saint-Georges’ hospital dates back to 1270, two centuries before the foundation of its most famous neighbour Hospices de Beaune in 1443. The Hospices de Nuits works in exactly the same was as Beaune, combining a real medical activity and a state-of-the art wine estate.

Spread over 12,4 hectares around the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges and in vast majority planted with Pinot Noir, the Hospices de Nuits wine estate sells all of its harvest on auction and en primeur, every third sunday of march following harvest.

The following appellations are auctioned: Nuits-Saint-Georges (village) - Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru  - Gevrey Chambertin (village). For each appellation, several different wines (called cuvées) are auctioned. Some cuvées are complex blends of several plots, whilst some other ones are 100% terroir-based. Albert Bichot’s mission is to help you understand and choose the wine that is right for you!

How to buy at the Hospices de Nuits-Saint-Georges wine auction ?

Every third Sunday of March the Hospices de Nuits-Saint-Georges auction is a not-to-be-missed event for all lovers of fine Burgundy wines. Each lot auctioned corresponds to a certain number of 228 litres barrels, called pièces. One barrel amounts to 288 bottles of 75 cl after ageing. Money raised during the auction will allow the «winemaking hospital» to take care of its patients, its buildings and its vineyards.

As for the Hospices de Beaune auction and the most prestigious Crus Classés de Bordeaux, the wines are sold en primeur, 6 months after the harvest. After the auction, they will be carefully aged in Albert Bichot’s own cellars for 12 months. This is the time we need to bring them to their utmost potential and quality level, before being bottled and shipped to you.

Wines from a specific vintage will be shipped in June 2 years after the vintage year, with their unmistakable and iconic label, in wooden case of 6. You can add your name as a buyer on the label and also convert your 75 cl bottles in magnums or jeroboams, for a small extra cost. You can even have the empty wooden barrel just for you as a souvenir!
