The Festival

Musique & Vin au Clos Vougeot has an exceptional vocation; that of creating a fusion between musicians of international fame and the winegrowers of Burgundy. It offers an amplified experience to its public, pleasure that appeals to both the ears and the palate.

Headliners include Jean-Yves Thibaudet, the Quatuor Talich and Gautier Capuçon, who regularly and enthusiastically appear along with Renaud Capuçon, Menahem Pressler, Yo-Yo Ma, Myung-Whun Chung, Ernst Ottensamer, Marlis Petersen, Emmanuel Pahud, Sunwook Kim, Joseph Calleja, Bruno Delepelaire, Matthew Polenzani, the Die Wiener Quintet, Ildar Abdrazakov, Magali Mosnier and Nicolas Dautricourt.

Promising young artists are placed alongside the key names during the festival, they are helped by various initiatives such as Le Fonds Instrumental (instruments and funds for young musicians) and the “Young Talents” scholarship.
This festival creates intimate bonds between musical excellence and the great wines of Burgundy, thus each concert is preceded by a wine tasting made possible by the many partners.
All concerts and tastings are hosted in places that are symbolically and historically linked to the wine of Burgundy, and so the prestigious settings of the Château du Clos Vougeot, the Château de Meursault and the Grande Halle de Beaune (town center) are fervent, long-time partners. The Festival being eager to expand the musical offer is currently settling into new locations.
