the tastevinage majors of 2020…


And for those of you with an interest, for the third year in a row, the tasting panels of the Tastevinage have chosen their ‘majors’ for the year – their best wines tasted. Like last year they have stuck with the reduced number of 12 wines to showcase. You can see them in the image below – courtesy the Tastevinage organisation. There are a couple of names that I don’t know and others that you will have seen showcased here in Burgundy Report.

    How does this work Bill ? Do they have a price limit of EUR 15 a bottle or some such ?

      Hi Peter,
      I assume that the Tastevinage get a fee for their labels, used by the individual domaines. There’s no price barrier in this process – there are many grand crus that go through the Tastevinage process and are awarded labels for that. It just seems that for their respective appellations, these were the cream of the crop in 2020…
      That’s two years in a row that Bertagna have won credit for their Clos des Perrières – surely quite a bit more than €15 – and last year a Corton-Charlemagne was given the nod…
