Water Separates the people of the world.  Wine unites them.

 

Our study in Burgundy continues this month and it will be hard to match the old Burgundy that we tasted last week back to the 1959 vintage, but the show must go on and as expensive as the top wines from Burgundy are there are still a lot of great values coming from the world’s greatest dirt for the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varietals. 
Hospices de Beaune - Hôtel Dieu Museum in Beaune
This time our study just contains wines from the famous Hopices De Beaune wine auction that occurs every November where they auction off barrels of wines to help fund the local hospital in Beaune.
The Hospices de Beaune aka Hôtel-Dieu de Beaune is a former charitable almshouse in Beaune.  Founded in 1443 by Nicolas Rolin, chancellor of Burgundy, as a hospital for the poor and indigent.  The original hospital building, the Hôtel-Dieu is one of the finest examples of fifteenth-century Burgundian architecture, is now a museum. Medical services for patients ended in 1971 these are now provided in modern hospital buildings.
The Hôtel-Dieu was founded on 4 August 1443, at that time Burgundy was ruled by Duke Philip the Good.  The Hundred Years' War had recently ended by the signing of the Treaty of Arras in 1435. Massacres, however, continued with marauding bands (écorcheurs) still roaming the countryside, pillaging and destroying, provoking misery and famine.  Most of the people of Beaune were destitute, and the area had recently suffered an outbreak of plague.  Nicolas Rolin, the Duke's Chancellor, and his wife Guigone de Salins, responded by building a hospital and refuge for the poor.  He was given permission from Pope Eugene IV in 1441, the hospice was built and consecrated on December 31st 1452.

The building's design was most likely overseen by the Flemish architect Jacques Wiscrère.  There is a documentary record of a large range of Flemish and French masons, painters and glass cutters employed for its construction. The facade today is regarded as a superior example of Northern Renaissance civic architecture and a treasure trove of panel painting, given its numerous portraits of Rolin, his wife and members of his extended family.
The Hospices de Beaune consists of a pair of two-storied buildings arranged around a stone courtyard. The building wings are well-preserved today; they contain half-timber galleries and ornate rooftops with dormer windows. The hospital is arranged so that the wings served the office, kitchen and apothecary functions. The nuns and patients were housed nearer the chapel, towards the center of the complex.
The Hospices de Beaune received the first patient on 1 January 1452. Elderly, disabled and sick people, with orphans, women about to give birth and the destitute have all been uninterruptedly welcomed for treatment and refuge from the Middle Ages until today. This Catholic institution focused on healing both the body and spirit of its patients.
The charity auction been arranged annually since 1859, taking place on the third Sunday in November amid a three-day festival devoted to the food and wines of Burgundy called Les Trois Glorieuses.  The charity is preceded by a black tie dinner at the Clos de Vougeot on day one and followed by the lunch La Paulée de Meursault on day three.  The Domaine des Hospices de Beaune is a non-profit organization which owns around 61 hectares (150 acres) of donated vineyard land, much of this classified Grand and Premier cru.  With bidding by professional and private buyers, the barrels, from 31 cuvées of red wine and 13 of white wine, attain prices usually well in excess of the current commercial values, although the results give some indication of the trend in expected bulk wine prices for the vintage from the rest of the region.
Over the centuries, the hospital radiated outwards, grouping with similar establishments in the surrounding villages of Pommard, Nolay, Meursault. Many donations - farms, property, woods, works of art and of course vineyards - were made to it, by grateful families and generous benefactors. The institution is one of the best and oldest examples of historical, philanthropic, and wine-producing heritage, and has become linked with the economic and cultural life of Burgundy.
The auction has been attended by mostly wine professionals and wine collectors like the three amigos whose names appear on the label of this 2018 vintage red Burgundy.  We have this hand selected 2018 vintage wine on the table tonight that is also available for purchase along with 11 other wines from previous auctions.   The fee for this “Once in a Lifetime” Hospices de Beaune Burgundy wine tasting which includes dinner is $295 + tax, for reservations call 954-523-9463 or e-mail andy@winewatch.com.
