History

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.
