Description

    History of the Cuvee : Antoine Rousseau and Barbe Deslandes founded in 1645 the Hôpital de la Sainte-Trinité, subsequently renamed the Hospice de la Charité and associated with the Hospices de Beaune at the Revolution. The parcel of Cent Vignes, in which vines where mainly planted between 1944 and 1958, represents the heart of this Cuvee, or 48% of its composition. Looking down over Pommard and representing a third of the Cuvee, the parcel of Les Montrevenots is made up only of old vines, planted prior to 1966.

  • Tasting Note
    The Beaune "Cuvée Rousseau-Deslandes" 2014 from the Hospices de Beaune presents a nice ruby colour. The nose reveals spices, mocha and liquorice notes. On the palate, the wine is ample, velvety and offers cocoa, blackcurrant and toasted bred aromas.
