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!
