Congratulations to our medal winning winemakers at Challenge Millésime Bio


Next week wine professionals from around the world will gather together in Montpellier for the Millésime Bio 2016 organic wine fair. The Challenge Millésime Bio wine competition is also run for the event, and this year saw three of our partner winemakers win medals.

 

Millesime Bio 2016 Challenge

 

This international wine competition receives more than 1200 wine samples from France and from others countries around the world. It is always presided over by a well known personality from the professional wine world, and this year the Jury President was Lars Torstenson, a Swedish oenologist based in Provence for the past 25 years, and who travels the world tasting wines for his job.

The tasting of the 1392 wines presented this year took place on the 12th January, and the jury awarded 419 medals:

  • 136 gold medals
  • 172 silver medals
  • 111 bronze medals

Our partner winemakers once again figured amongst the winners of this prestigious organic wine competition:

  • The Clos la Bohème (Haut-Médoc) 2012 from Château Beau Rivage, near Bordeaux, won a gold medal
  • Domaine la Cabotte in the Rhone Valley saw their Garance (Côtes du Rhône Village Massif d'Uchaux) 2014 awarded a silver medal. This is also the wine chosen by Gourmet Odyssey for the Wine Experience
  • Domaine Chapelle in Burgundy received a bronze medal for their Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru Morgeot 2013 red wine.

Congratulations to all
