In 1991, Clos de la Roche was the second Côte de Nuits vineyard to be acquired by the Hospices, the frst having been Mazis-Chambertin, in 1976. A donation from Mr. & Mrs. Cyrot-Chaudron allowed the purchase of rows of vines at the heart of the gently sloping Grand Cru hillside between Morey-Saint-Denis and Gevrey-Chambertin. Two thirds of these vines were planted in 1972, or before. Because of the rarity and beauty of this wine, it is regularly one of the most fiercely contested Cuvées.
