Here is one more postcard . . .
Sise en bons murs
entoures de vignoble
Beaune je suis,
la premiere cite
ou le duc de Bourgogne
ait habite;
Si me voyez tant belle,
riche et noble.

La Salle des Povres

From an on-line translator:

Seated in good walls
Surrounded by vineyards
Beaune I am,
The first cite
Or the Duke of Burgundy
Has lived;
If I see so beautiful,
Rich and noble.

In the Land of Grands Crus ...

The Hospices de Beaune or Hôtel-Dieu de Beaune is a former charitable almshouse in Beaune, France. It was founded in 1443 by Nicolas Rolin, chancellor of Burgundy, as a hospital for the poor and needy. The original hospital building, the Hôtel-Dieu, is one of the finest examples of French fifteenth-century architecture and is now a museum.

An important charity wine auction is held here in November each year.
