Burghound 90 Points, A. Meadows
"Light ruby. A fresh and perfumed nose of red berries, spice, earth and a hint of sauvage leads to delicious, supple and round light to barely middle weight flavors that possess an attractively textured mouth feel, all wrapped in a balanced and lingering finish. This is definitely lighter in weight but displays excellent flavor authority and plenty of punch."

Chateau David de Beaufort, Beaune - Burgundy
The history of Chateau David de Beaufort is intimately linked to the history of Burgundy, to the wines of Burgundy and to the Hospices de Beaune. The 17th century estate was owned by the Hotel Dieu des Hospices de Beaune from 1750 to 1792. It was purchased during the Second World war by Dr. Denis Bizot who ran a domain of Burgundy Grands Crus and was surgeon at the Hospices de Beaune. In 1984, the estate was converted into a wine-making property by Jacques and Jacqueline Coudray-Bizot.
