Wine Review Report :

Last reviewed: 26 September, 2019

The city in the Côte de Beaune area, the southern part of the Côte d'Or, is considered the wine capital of French Burgundy (the political capital is Dijon). The city was already founded by Julius Caesar (100-44 BC) as a Roman camp and was the seat of the kings of Burgundy until the 13th century. Under Duke Philip the Good (1396-1467), Nicolas Rolin (1376-1462) founded the world-famous "Hôtel Dieu" (Hotel of God) in 1443, the Christian Hospices de Beaune, which was used as a hospital until 1971. The annual auction (sale) of wines for charitable purposes held here is now a world event.
