A few weeks before the Hospices de Beaune 161st auction, at the end of vinifications, I had the pleasure to interview Hospices de Beaune winemaker Ludivine Griveau about how she managed this complex 2021 vintage. I invite to read the full harvest 2021 report here.
Precision in the vineyard and the winery, combined with a long experience, a top-level equipment and highly-motivated team allowed her to stay true to the estate’s philosophy: utmost respect for terroirs and cuvées.
A small harvest but great wines in 2021. We are back to the classic Burgundy wines that we love!

Hospices de Beaune : testimonials from Albert Bichot customers
“In 2011, I acquired some fine Hospices de Beaune wines via Albert Bichot for the first time. I like to open these bottles on important family occasions. The advice and service are very well organised by Albert Bichot.
“My friends and I have been buying bottles of wine at the auction via the www.hospices-beaune.com website for several years. They have a practical system that gives you access to the Hospices auction’s wines without having to acquire an entire barrel, allowing you to discover several different wines. The advice and selection are spot-on, enabling you to get your hands on these very fine Burgundy wines, delivered to your door with your name as purchaser featuring on the labels!
“To me, what sets Hospices-Beaune.com by Albert Bichot apart is not only the amazing opportunity to buy just a few cases of fine wine at the Hospices auction, but also their wide range of Burgundies and the outstanding service provided by the sales and logistics team.
“I have been buying Hospices de Beaune wines and old vintages with the support of Albert Bichot and www.hospices-Beaune.com since 2018. The Hospices wines are famous in Japan but very hard to find. So I’m really glad this website exists and very pleased with the customer support.
