60th Hospices de Nuits Charity Wine Auction
New record on Sunday at the Château du Clos-de-Vougeot
The 60th Hospices de Nuits Wine Auction was held this Sunday March 14th at the Château du Clos-de-Vougeot: 1.9 million euros were raised! The profits from this sale, sponsored by academician Erik Orsenna, will finance the hospital and the retirement home managed by the Hospices de Nuits.
The Pièce de Charité, a Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er cru "Les Saint-Georges" barrel of 228 liters, has been sold for € 49,380 for the benefit of Institut Pasteur research on mutations in influenza viruses, which may also be useful for Covid-19 variants.
Due to the specific context, amateurs, professionals and buyers were able to follow on line this event.
