Item Description

"Since the early 19th Century the patients of the Hospices in Romanèche-Thorins bequeathed sections of vineyards to the hospital, as compensation for their care. Located at the southern tip of Burgundy, the vineyards have accumulated to form an estate of more than 6 hectares. Beginning with the 1926 vintage, Collin-Bourisset, recognized as a Moulin-à-Vent specialist, was put in charge with the exclusive care of producing, aging and marketing this superb wine. This wine is produced from 100% Gamay grapes grown on soil that has prevalent granite with manganese using sustainable viticulture. Grapes are harvested by hand only, with vinification in whole bunches with submerged cap and destemming. Traditional, long fermentation, between 10 to 12 days ensures the wine keeps an excellent color and has superb tannin extraction. The wine is then partially aged in oak barrels." ~ Winery Notes

View all from Collin-Bourisset
Collin-BourissetEstablished in 1821, Collin Bourisset is located in Creches-sur-Saone at the edge of the Beaujolais and Maconnais districts. Beyond producing its own in-house wines, Collin Bourisset is the exclusive producer and marketer for the Hospices de Romaneche-Thorins as well as the Hospices de Lyon. Since the Medieval Ages, hospitals in Burgundy accumulated rows and soon hectares of vines as payment for their care of growers and their families. In the last century, and until 1926, each vintage of the Hospices was sold at public auction to provide funding for the care of the sick. An alternative to the more costly Hospices de Beaune, the wines of Hospices de Romaneche-Thorins and Hospices de Lyon have a rich history that compliments their classic Burgundy heritage. These wines are rarely available outside of France, and Vision Wine Brands proudly brings them as well as a selection of Collin Bourisset vintages to the American market.
