The 62nd Hospices de Nuits-Saint-Georges wine auction, held last week on March 12th, at Château du Clos de Vougeot, delivered a tremendous result: the auction raised a staggering €3,603,000, a 45% increase from 2022. An increasing result for this authentic and generous vintage. The ‘Charity Pièce’ also attained a new historic record, raising €64,580 for the non-profit Les Blouses Roses, whose ambassador at the event was the actress Constance Dollé.
More generous than in previous years, the 2022 harvest enabled 160 barrels to be put up for auction across 19 different cuvées, representing the diversity and authenticity of each cru. The 62nd Hospices de Nuits-Saint-Georges wine auction raised a €3,603,000, up 45% on the previous year (109 barrels auctioned in 2022).
The sale of the 18 cuvées of red wine raised €3,504,000, up +44.32% compared to 2022. The sale of the only cuvée of white wine (Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Terres Blanches, Pierre de Pême cuvée) generated €99,000, up +70.69% compared to the 61st edition.
Given the larger 2022 harvest compared to previous years, the average price for a pièce of red or white wine is €22,518, down 1.27% compared to 2022 results. The average price of red wines, representing 18 out of 19 cuvées on sale, saw a stable result of €22,318, i.e. -0.73% compared to 2022.
The notoriety of the Hospices de Nuits-Saint-Georges Wine Auction continues to grow, with a recognition of the quality of the wines up for sale thanks to the sterling efforts of the estate’s technical manager Jean-Marc Moron. Intense and opulent, the generous 2022 harvest won over buyers in search of the excellence of a vintage expressing Burgundian classicism in all its majesty.
