Hospices de Beaune

International Wine Challenge and Decanter Awards : outstanding results for Albert Bichot and 2 Hospices de Beaune wines

We at Albert Bichot decided a few years ago to present some of the Hospices de Beaune wines that we select, bid on and age at some top-level wine competitions, ie distinguished by their reputation and undisputable objectivity. This is a way to evaluate our day to day care and patient work in our cellars, the utmost passion with which we age the Hospices de Beaune or Hospices de Nuits-Saint-Georges wines after a tremendous work is done in the vineyards and during vinification by their respective winemakers Ludivine Griveau and Jean-Marc Moron.

We are extremely proud to present the latest awards won at the International Wine Challenge competition

Clos de la Roche, cuvée Cyrot Chaudron 2019 : Red Trophy (best red wine in the world) at the International Wine Challenge. Also winner of a Platinum Medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards.

Winning so many awards for this outstanding Grand Cru is the sure proof of a wine that is absolutely extra-ordinary, a sublime expression of pure limestone terroir on a brilliant 2019 vintage.

Beautiful colour with elegant berry fruits, blackcurrant, raspberry and a gentle sprinkle of spice. Elegant with supple tannins with a mineral core surrounded by generous ripe dark fruit. Lovely white pepper on the finish.

Classic Meursault – rich and plush with layers of stone fruit and greengage. Nose is spicy, redolent of sappy vanilla oak. In the mouth the wine has huge structure, lovely texture, bags of quince. Masses of potential – world class!
