HOSPICES DE BEAUNE - BEAUNE 1ER CRU 2016 Cuvée Nicolas Rolin
Colour: Intense ruby colour.
Nose: An expressive fruity and spicy nose (a mixture of blackcurrant, blackberry, vanilla and liquorice) which finds its complexity in fine toasted and peppery notes.
Palate: On the palate, it develops ripe and melted tannins. The finish is tauter, racy thanks to a minerality that persists and that will bring complexity with time.
Recommendations: Serve with white meats, such as roasted or braised veal filet mignon. Strongly flavoured cheeses: Epoisses, Soumaintrain, Munster, Maroilles...

The Cuvée: Nicolas Rolin, Chancellor of the Duke of Burgundy Philippe le Bon, decided to found, in 1443, the Hôtel-Dieu de Beaune. As early as 1452, nuns from Flanders were able to welcome and care for the first patients in the large Salle des Pôvres. This cuvée was extended in 1963 thanks to a bequest from Madame Maurice Pallegoix, in memory of her husband who was mayor of Demigny. The oldest plots in this cuvée are the Cent Vignes (54% of the planted area) and the Teurons (19%), which were planted between 1953 and 1975, and 1950 and 1955 respectively.
Aged for 16 months in 100% new French oak barrels.
Drying time of at least 36 months for the musts. The wood must come from 100% French state forests.
