Story of the wine Beaune 1er Cru Dames Hospitalières
Traditionally, this fine Cuvée of Beaune Premier Cru opens the sale. It is named for the lady nurses who have tended the sick of the Hospices since its foundation in 1443. Furthermore, several nurses left important legacies. These sisters originated from Saint-Omer, in northern France, and did their training at the Hospice of Valenciennes, which lies just within France’s border today with Belgium.Download PDF
