strong prices @ hospices de nuits

Not to forget, just a few days ago we had the 56th auction of the wines of the Hospices de Nuits St.Georges – held this year at the Château du Clos de Vougeot.

Maître Daniel Herry, auctioneers from Beaune, were responsible for a sale that raised 1.157 million Euros, much of which will go toward the cost of refurbishment of the hospital in Nuits St.Georges. Given the frost of 2016, there were only 90.5 228 litre barrels in the sale – versus 120 barrels of 2015 auctioned in 2016 – also a low volume vintage. The average price, per barrel, increased by 14%, so proceeds passed the €1 million mark for only the second time and the total sum achieved was only €150,000 away from the record total for this sale.
