Georges Kritter was a childhood friend, and cousin, of the late André Boisseaux, and worked with him for 40 years at the head of a famous négociant-éleveur. André Boisseaux regularly bought the first lot, and the lion’s share, of the Hospices de Beaune wine auction, over many decades. A legacy from Georges Kritter’s widow enabled the Hospices de Beaune to purchase these Clos de La Roche vines in 1991 and to create a second cuvée on this prestigious appellation, thanks to generous benefactors.
