History

Nicolas Rolin, Chancellor of the Duke of Burgundy Philippe le Bon, founded the Hôtel-Dieu in Beaune in 1443. From 1452, nursing sisters, who had been brought from Flanders, welcomed and cared for the first patients in the great Paupers’ Ward. The Cuvée was enlarged in 1963 thanks to a legacy made by Madame Maurice Pallegoix in memory of her husband, who was mayor of Demigny. The oldest vines in the Cuvée are Les Cent Vignes, representing 54% of the surface, and Les Teurons (19%), which were respectively planted between 1953 and 1975, and 1950 and 1955.
