11am: Exclusive Wine Tasting - Press only

This year, the focus will be on three Bourgogne appellations, presented by their producers:
Vézelay: The 44th Village appellation, which came into being with the 2017 vintage and which will host the Saint-Vincent Tournante next January.
Volnay: After several vintages of low volumes due to adverse weather, this venerable red appellation on the Côte de Beaune is back.
With 29 Climats classed as Premier Cru, it offers elegant wines whose finesse is accompanied by great aromatic intensity.
Bourgogne Coulanges-la-Vineuse : One of the 14 Bourgogne wines with a Dénomination Géographique Identifiée, this appellation of the Grand Auxerrois region is one of the few that is available in all three colors.
