The Great Wines of Languedoc - The Wines from Occitania
Sud de France - Maison de l'Occitanie New-York
The Virtuoso Wines of Saint-Chinian AOP
For this new selection of Virtuoso Wines from the Saint-Chinian appellation, the blind selection tasting took place once again in New York, at La Maison de l'Occitanie, on the famous 5th Avenue.
This year, the President of the jury was Andrew Bell, also President of American Sommelier. As for the previous editions of the Virtuoses, about forty domains participated in this great adventure. Nearly 200 wines were tasted blind by a large panel of jurors (all professionals).
Each vintage presented is tasted on three different vintages, a vintage for sale at the estate and two older ones. If a vintage is considered weak, the wine is discarded.
