About This Event

Each November, the famous Hospices de Beaune auction is the highlight of the Trois Glorieuses and its festivities take place in the centre of Beaune. The Hospices wines from renowned Climats in prestigious appellations such as Beaune, Pommard, Meursault and Mazis-Chambertin are ‘great wines for a great cause’.

The “auction inside the auction” of the Piece du Président is a key moment, where a very special barrel of fine wine is sold at the highest possible price to the benefit of one or two charities under the hammer of local or international celebrities.

Albert Bichot first participated in the Hospices de Beaune auction back in 1876! We have been buying these great wines for a great cause for ourselves or on behalf of our customers, using our proven methods, each year for over 150 years. Participating in this important Burgundy wine world ritual each year is therefore a long-standing family passion.

For us, it is not just a question of being able to use our exceptional savoir-faire, we never forget the charitable vocation of the Hospices auction. We are proud to have aged the famous ‘Pièce du Président’ (also known as the Pièce de Charité, the charity barrel), the proceeds of which go to various charities, on 6 occasions.

We have been the top buyer at the auction for over 25 years. Each year, on average, we taste, select and buy more than 150 barrels at the auction, which we then age in our cellars on behalf of our trade customers and wine enthusiasts from around the world.

This year’s auctions will take place November 17-19 2023.
