Bernard Gauvain is one of the Hospices’ most generous benefactors, who left all his worldly goods to the Hospice de la Charité in 1804. The wines coming from its Volnay-Santenots hillsides constitute one of the greatest glories of the Hospices de Beaune. Often amongst the first to ripen, the vines give wines which are rich, complex, elegant and long.
