The Worldwide oeuf en meurette Championship

It is now an eagerly awaited event in the world of gastronomy: the Worldwide oeufs en meurette championship is organized for the 5th consecutive year by the Château du Clos de Vougeot, a place so emblematic of this Burgundian recipe cooked across the world. A true signature dish of the Château du Clos de Vougeot, oeufs en meurette are served at each Gala dinner organized there. The resident chef of the Château - Alexandra Bouvret - and her team have developed a real know-how in the field of poached eggs and invite chefs from Burgundy, France and elsewhere to meet every year, at the beginning of October, at the Château du Clos de Vougeot to celebrate and magnify this emblematic dish.
