The 92th edition of the Tastevinage was held on the 6th of September under the Chairmanship of Gérard Margeon, Executive Wine Director of Alain Ducasse.
540 were submitted for appraisal and only 184 were awarded the possibility to bear the label of the Tastevinage.
-At this occasion, the jury gathering more than 200 tasters; have to answer these following questions :
- “is this wine worthy of the appellation and the vintage on its label ?”
- “has it a good aging potential ?”
- “is it a wine I would be pleased to have in my cellar and proud to serve to a friend ?”
Following this criteria, the selected bottles will be declared "tasteviné"; they will be entitled to bear the arms of the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin on the label, back label or round sticker.
The twin aims of the Tastevinage are to reward the producer for the quality of his wine and to provide the consumer with an extra guarantee.
