113th edition of Tastevinage to recognize the excellence of Burgundy wines

16.04.2024, News Автор: Oleksandra Hryhorieva

For the first time in the 2024 season, the selection committee of passionate experts reunites to evaluate and select the most worthy examples of Burgundy wines. Oleksandra Hryhorieva, Drinks+ correspondent in this famous French wine region, joined the committee to contribute to Tastevinage’s mission.

March proved to be an eventful month at the Château du Clos de Vougeot, where the Vente des vins des Hospices de Nuits, Tastevinage and Grands Jours de Bourgogne took place with a superb tasting dedicated to the Vosne-Romanée and Vougeot appellations.

On March 15, the headquarters of Burgundy wine professionals and enthusiasts opened its doors to winemakers, traders, négociants, sommeliers and journalists to gain their expertise during the 113th edition of Tastevinage. The cultural map of the Burgundy competition went beyond the borders of France: representatives of Italy, Belgium, England, the USA, Ukraine and Asia united around one mission – to select the most excellent wine examples nominated for Tastevinage.


Xavier Thuizat, Best Sommelier of France and Meilleur Ouvrier de France in the sommelier category in 2022, headed the commission of Tastevinage tasters. In his welcoming speech, Xavier emphasized that Burgundy wines remain the most popular and best-selling wines in European restaurants. This is truly the most renowned wine region in the world and a contest like this helps keep the bar high.


During this spring session, a total of 527 Burgundy wines were showcased. Out of this selection, only 170 were awarded the prestigious Tastevinage label, representing 32% of the wines presented. These included 58 regional appellations, 64 village appellations, and 48 Premier Cru and Grand Cru appellations that impressed the discerning palates of the jury-tasters in attendance. The full list of recognized wines can be found on the official website.

At my table there was a wonderful selection of Chablis wines, consisting of 2 regional, 2 premier cru and 2 grand cru appellations. Tasted blind, one of the 2022 Chablis Grand Cru wines was a fine representation of the terroir. The light golden green color catches the eye. The nose is welcoming and pronounced, with notes of ripe citrus and green fruits. Fresh, with pleasant minerality (flint) and aromas of flowers and almonds. This wine has its own charm. Full-bodied, well balanced, with great aging potential.

The 114th edition of Tastevinage is scheduled for September 6, 2024. Drinks+ will traditionally share with you the progress of the events and the results. Cheers!
