New medals for our winemakers at Millésime Bio


The world's largest professional organic wine fair, Millésime Bio, took place this week in Montpellier and brought together some 800 producers of organic wine from all around the globe. During the fair, the results of the Challenge Millésime Bio 2014 organic wine competition were revealed, and included two of our partner winemakers.

Each year the Challenge Millésime Bio competition is chaired by a well known personality from the world of wine, and this year saw Fabrice Sommier, the head sommelier of the Georges Blanc group and Meilleur Ouvrier de France 2007, lead the wine tastings.

The wine tastings took place on Tuesday 26th November at Mas de Saporta in Lattes, nearby to Montpellier. The jury consisted of 233 wine professionals who tasted some 1214 wine samples.

Congratulations to our partner wineries, Domaine la Cabotte and Domaine Chapelle, who each won bronze medals for their wines, including some of the ones chosen for the Gourmet Odyssey Wine Experience:

  • Domaine la Cabotte won bronze for their 2012 vintage of the Garance AOC Côtes du Rhône Villages, Massif d'Uchaux red, the wine chosen by Gourmet Odyssey
  • Domaine Chapelle won two bronze medals for their Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot 2011 and for their Clos des Cornières 2011, which is also Gourmet Odyssey's chosen wine at Domaine Chapelle.
