The laureates of the 107th Tastevinage announced

The 107th edition of the Tastevinage took place at the Château du Clos de Vougeot last Friday the 19th of March 2021, with food writer, television presenter and radio broadcaster Vincent Ferniot as guest of honour. In the course of the degustation, 680 wines from all over Burgundy were examined by a hundred or so winetaster-judges whose task it was to select those most representative of their appellation and vintage. Out of all the wines presented, only 201 were chosen to bear the Tastevinage seal of approval.

THE RESULTS OF THE 107TH EDITION OF THE TASTEVINAGE

In the Great Cellar of the Château du Clos de Vougeot, veritable shrine to Burgundy’s winegrowing, historical and cultural heritage, the expert palates of 108 winetaster-judges , made up of producers, sommeliers, restaurateurs, merchants, buyers, journalists and influencers, tasted 680 Burgundy wines in a blind winetasting.

Out of all the wines presented, only 201, or 29.56%, were awarded the Tastevinage seal of approval. The 201 laureates were made up of 107 red, 70 white and 24 white or rosé sparkling wines.

In all, 60 regional appellations, 81 village appellations, 60 Premier and Grand Crus appellations received recognition. This result illustrates and highlights the defining purpose of the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin: to promote the quality and reputation of Burgundy’s great wines, whatever the level of their appellation, beyond the region’s frontiers.

THE TASTEVINAGE: SEAL OF APPROVAL FOR SELECTED WINES FROM BURGUNDY SINCE 1950

Created in 1950 by the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, the TASTEVINAGE awards its seal of approval to those wines it judges to be truly representative of the greater Burgundy wine region, from Chablis to the Beaujolais crus. To ensure impartiality, wines undergo a blind tasting during which they are subjected to rigorous critical appraisal by a jury of experts drawn from the wine industry, including growers, merchants, brokers, sommeliers, oenologists, distributors and wine writers.
At the end of the selection process, the TASTEVINAGE seal of approval is awarded to those wines which truly epitomize the character of the appellation and the vintage, giving the consumer a guarantee of authenticity and enjoyment.
