Hospices de Beaune Corton Grand Cru Docteur Peste 2014

Strong and intense aroma with a distinct pinot-character, mature dark cherry, some blackberries, spices, well-integrated tones of barrels, perfume and discreet elements of licorice and vegetation.

Taste with good concentration and tight character, red dark cherry, some cranberries, spices, distinct acidity with green apple in the middle, rocky and chalky mineral tones, relatively intense tannins that are well integrated with the fruit. The taste is cooler in style than the aromas indicate. The wine is quite accessible now and will develop

History of the Cuvee

Jean-Louis Peste practised medicine at the Hospices de Beaune for more than 30 years in the middle of the XIXth Century. His daughter, the Baroness de Baÿ, bequeathed a vast domain to the Hôtel-Dieu in 1924, in memory of her father.

With 90% from very old vines or vines planted before 1985, this Cuvee is made up of 43% of parcels of Chaumes and Voierosses facing south-south-west. Their vines were planted on four separate occasions between 1976 and 1985. The parcels of Les Bressandes, with the oldest vines dating from 1940, Les Fiètres and Les Grèves bring the final balance to this Cuvee.

The Wine

Clear red colour. Strong and intense aroma with a distinct pinot-character, mature dark cherry and some blackberries, spices, well-integrated tones of barrels, some perfume and discreet elements of licorice and vegetation. Taste with good concentration and tight character, red dark cherry, some cranberries, spices, distinct acidity with green apple in the middle, rocky and chalky mineral tones, relatively intense tannins that are well integrated with the fruit. The taste is cooler in style than the aromas indicate. The barrels are present with intense spicy tones, but the character of barrels is well polished. The wine is quite accessible now and will develop
