ABOUT THE WINE
In a context of misery and famine, Nicolas Rolin, the Chancellor of the Duke of Burgundy, and his spouse, founded the Hôtel-Dieu in Beaune in 1443, to come to the aid of the “sick and needy”. In Burgundy, “no asset being more precious than vines”, it was thus that the Domaine des Hospices de Beaune was constructed, a reflection of the multitude of the greatest terroirs of Burgundy and of its generosity. It is a humanist philosophy widely followed over the centuries, to the point where today the Hospices de Beaune, benefit from a substantial private inheritance, within which the Wine Domain represents an aspect just as vital as it is symbolic. It perpetuates and prolongs the notion of charity by offering, in turn, its wines of high quality. A former pupil of the Cadre Noir in Saumur, Cavalry Officer promoted General in 1914, Staff Officer of General Foch in the First World War, Grand-Croix of the Légion d’Honneur, decorated with the Croix de Guerre, Paul-Jules Muteau (1856-1927) made an important donation to the Hôtel-Dieu in 1926, including the Domaine de Laborde-au-Château, as well as beautiful works of art to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs.

TASTING NOTES
A wine with a deep ruby colour. On the nose is intense with raspberry blueberry vanilla red currant earthy aromas. On the palate is medium with a very long finish. Superb!

FOOD PAIRING
This wine pairs well with a wide range of foods. Great match with duck and other game birds, casseroles or, of course, stews like beef bourguignon.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
The Cuvee is composed of five Volnay Premiers Crus, amongst the best placed.
