Bourgognes International

The exclusive letter for wine distributors

N°60 / November 2017

Double good news for Bourgogne wines


The signature of the relevant government ministers brings an end to the administrative procedures, allowing these wines to be brought to market with the 2017 vintage. As a reminder, in June of this year, the Institut National des Appellations d’Origine (INAO) said ‘yes’ to the ‘cahier des charges’ of those 2 AOCs.

Despite drawing on 2,000 years of history and a reputation for excellence that is the envy of many, the Bourgogne winegrowing region is not resting on its laurels. Winegrowers and négociants are continuing their efforts to improve quality and promote the terroir, and producing wines to reflect that.

Moreover, it is with a great deal of pleasure and pride that in June of this year, these same producers obtained validation from the Institut National des Appellations d’Origine (INAO) for the creation of two new AOCs: Bourgogne Côte d’Or and Vézelay.
