The 105th Edition of Tastevinage : Spring 2020
In response to the national Covid-19 epidemic, the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, organizers of the Tastevinage, postponed the Spring edition scheduled for the beginning of March. The Spring Tastevinage will now take place this coming Friday May 29th at the Château with a reduced panel of judges and modified organization and reception conditions to comply with the necessary health and safety requirements.
At this Tastevinage, like those before it, those wines most authentically representative of the Burgundy Wine-growing Region will be chosen from a selection 658 by a jury of wine-industry professionals, and awarded with the Tastevinage seal of approval – a trustworthy endorsement of their quality and authenticity.
The birthplace of winegrowing in Burgundy, the Château du Clos de Vougeot will play host to experts and professionals from the wine world – including winegrowers, sommeliers, wine-merchants, brokers, journalists and influencers – who will take part in a blind winetasting. At the end of the tasting, jury members will select the wines judged to be most true to their appellations and vintages.
For this particular edition, in order to guarantee the safety of jury members and others present, the teams at the Château have undertaken a thorough review of how the event is organized, so that it meets the requirements of the hygiene and safety measures currently in force.
The TASTEVINAGE laureates will be announced from June 3rd 2020 on the website : www.tastevinage.fr, as well in the press.Back to the news list
