Hospices de Beaune : Wine auction sets new price record

View Gallery

The 161st Hospices de Beaune wine auction took place this weekend, with a record-breaking sale of a cask of Corton Renardes Grand Cru, sold for 800,000 euros.

 

The Hospices de Beaune wine auction is a key event in the Burgundy wine world. It is indeed the first indicator of the great wines of Burgundy, some of which can reach record sales prices.

 

This year, these charity auctions raised no less than 11.67 million euros, more than last year, but with almost half as many lots. “It’s absolutely amazing,” said François Poher, director of the Hospices civils. “We have never sold so many good wines and produced so little“, added Frédéric Drouhin, president of the Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne (BIVB).
