Classic wine auction hit a record

There were in this year's edition of the Hospices de Beaune auction sold for more than 105 million. kr. It is the highest turnover ever and 39% greater than last year.

a total Of 631 casks of red wine and 197 casks of white wine was under the hammer in years. But with a price tag at an average of about 110,000 kr. for each dish the price was more than 19% higher than last year. Negocianter accounted for about 69% of the purchased casks and the rest went to private buyers. The private came from Europe (38%), Asia (55%) and USA (7%).

the Auction's most expensive dish is always La Pièce du Président 'the Presidential dish'. The dish went for a price of 1.6 million. kr. for a dish (288 fl.) of the Corton Clos du Roi and Meursault premier cru ‘Les Genevrières. In the regular auction was the most expensive a 456-liter barrel filled with Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru ‘Cuvée Dames de Flandres’ which was sold for around 1 million. kr.

2018 was a warm and excellent year in Burgundy with early spring, a very hot and dry summer. A cooler autumn meant that the grapes retain their acid. One can therefore expect a particularly nice class of the classical field, particularly at redwine.

the Auction is important for just the pricing of the new vintage from Burgundy. Many of the big negocianter using the auction as a benchmark for demand and prices. The auction is a charity event and supports a number of local charities.
