Results of the 36th Chablis Wine Competition

 

For the second year running, the Chablis Wine Competition was held in exceptional circumstances due to the ongoing health crisis. However, the event went ahead nonetheless, thanks to a strict protocol to ensure the safety of the tasting panel. It took place on 15 January 2022 in Beine, under the presidency of Guillaume Baroin, journalist, wine-lover, gourmet, and faithful fan of Bourgogne wines.

 

This competition is unusual in that the professionals entering their wines are not allowed to be jury members. The panel is made up from journalists, restaurateurs, sommeliers, wine traders, oenologists, winegrowers, and enlightened amateurs. The wines go through two rounds of tasting, and those that score highest on the first round, when they are sampled by the entire jury, are then put before a “super” jury, which selects the medal-winners.

 

This year, the competition focused on vintage 2020 for the Petit Chablis, Chablis and Chablis Premier Cru appellations and on vintage 2019 for Chablis Grand Cru. 29 medals were awarded based on the 262 samples submitted.
