Jazz à Vienne News in Brief – Rhoda Scott, patron of the Festival’s collector’s vintage of Côte-Rôtie and Condrieu; Big turnout this year at Jazz for Kids

It’s a tradition: every year, Jazz à Vienne produces its special vintage of Côte-Rôtie and Condrieu, which is very original: it is the only blended wine of these two renowned appellations.

Explanation: to obtain the appellation, grapes from different sources must not be mixed, except for this vintage. It is in fact a blend of wines previously vinified by six winegrowers: Yves Gangloff, Pierre Villard, Jean-Michel Gerin, Yves Cuilleron, Pierre Gaillard and the Vins de Vienne.

A micro-cuvée since only 480 bottles of each of the appellations are put on the market: they can be found at (good) wine merchants, in Vienne, Sainte-Colombe, Ampuis or Condrieu: 45 euros per bottle all the same, but it is a collector’s item… The Côte-Rôtie, vintage 2022, extremely silky this year is truly superb; the Condrieu comes from the 2023 harvest.

Micro vintage, but great artist: this year, after Melody Gardot in 2023, it is the organist Rhoda Scott in concert this evening Thursday at the ancient theater who in Cybèle tasted in preview this special vintage of which she is the godmother. And this, in the company of Stacy Kent who joined her to toast to the blue music.

Jazz for Kids in high demand…

The Jazz for Kids system with its beautiful wooden workshop clearly visible in Cybèle worked superbly well this year, filling up.

First, there are the aforementioned workshops that welcome children from Wednesday to Sunday, from 4 to 14 years old, to read, create, and discover the world of jazz. This year, other workshops have been added at the Conservatoire du Trente for 6-10 year olds; as well as others dedicated to yoga and singing.

Everyone is filling up, confirms Chloé Cibert, the head of Jazz for Kids at the Festival, who believes that this success is due to the fact that “Jazz for Kids is now well identified.” This activity really took off in 2018.

Finally, the particularly joyful and danceable shows for young audiences were also sold out with nearly a thousand young spectators. Enough to inspire battalions of future festival-goers…
