  • History: In April 2010, William D. Friedberg donated to the Hospices de Beaune a parcel of the appellation d’origine Santenay, with a surface area of 0.6 hectare and planted with Pinot Noir grapes.

    William D. Friedberg was, until recently, a wine importer in Boston, Massachusetts. He is a lover of the Burgundy region and of the wine auction of the Hospices de Beaune, at which he has been present for over 20 years, regularly participating in the bidding.

    Through his generous gesture, he wishes to honor the memory of his dearly departed wife, Christine, who was also a great lover of Burgundy. The production of this parcel of Santenay, which is cultivated to enrich the viticultural heritage of the Hospices, will bear the name of “Cuvée Christine Friedberg.”

    Soil: Clay & limestone

    The Vines: 0.6 ha of Les Hates

    Grape Varietals: 100% Pinot Noir

    Tasting Notes: Good structure with a lovely freshness, and a slight dryness on the palate.
