Hospices de Beaune

Video : the Charity Barrel at the 2011 Hospices de Beaune auction bought by English gentleman S.Williams with Albert Bichot

We invite you to see this video where Stephen Williams, from London-based wine merchant The Antique Wine Company, buys the “pièce de charité” at the 2011 Hospices de Beaune wine auction in Burgundy. A superbe 400 liters barrel of Corton Grand Cru Clos du Roy, Cuvée Baronne du Baÿ, bought 110 000 Euros to the benefit of 2 charities : France Alzheimer and Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque.

Congratulations once again to Stephen for his generosity. We will carefully age this particular barrel in our Beaune cellars. Thank you Stephen for trusting Albert Bichot to take care of this very special Burgundy wine.
