The 109th edition of the Tastevinage tasting


And as I have the theme of Clos de Vougeot (yesterday) what better than the results of the twice-yearly Tastevinage, held by Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, which was held in the château just a week ago?

This tasting was on Friday 25th March and included 442 wines that were assessed, blind, by the tasters.

Of the 442, 147 of these wines were assessed as meriting the Tastevinage label, of which 50 wear a Bourgogne label, 61 villages, 33 premier cru and, finally, 3 grand crus – there seem to be relatively fewer and fewer grand crus, and even 1er crus, presented these days. There are lots of new names on this list that I hope to discover this year; Galopière, Desertaux-Ferrand, Ponsard-Chevalier and others.

If you click on this link, you can find the list of successful producers and their wines.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Bill, I’ve visited and bought (a couple of 2010′)s from Ponsard-Chevalier (could have been an Eaves Mission but can’t recall without checking the vendange diary). If you’d like to know more give me a shout ?

    Always intended to revisit which will do one day soon hopefully.

      It was I Marko, but a failed mission due to no longer producing the particular wine I was after.
