The 2015 wine guides praise the Gourmet Odyssey partner vineyards

News from 09/10/2014

The Gourmet Odyssey partner winemakers have once again been honoured in the most renowned French wine guides.

The 2015 editions have recently hit the shelves, and they have had their wines selected and rewarded as being among the best from the thousands of wines tasted. Let's take a little tour around France..

 Guide Hachette 2015

Domaine Chapelle

Domaine Chapelle in Burgundy is referenced in the Guide Hachette des Vins de France 2015 for several of their wines, including the Clos des Cornières, which is the wine chosen for the Gourmet Odyssey Wine Experience. This delicious red wine is described as presenting a fruity nose with hints of balsamic, and being round and soft on the palate.

Domaine Jean-Marc Brocard

Still in Burgundy, Domaine Jean-Marc Brocard is noted for many of their wines in no less than 4 different guides such as the Bettane & Desseauve 2015, Guide Hachette des Vins de France 2015, and the Guide des Bonnes Affaires du Vin 2015, published by the Revue du Vin de France. The Vins en Biodynamie guide awarded three ladybirds for their Chablis La Boissonneuse 2011, the wine from the vineyard where the Gourmet Odyssey adopted vines are located. It is described as being a very pleasant and full wine, and the guide highlights that La Boissonneuse has regularly been acclaimed since 2012.

Domaine La Cabotte

Further to the south in the Cotes du Rhone region, Domaine la Cabotte sees the wine chosen by Gourmet Odyssey, the Garance red wine, also awarded three ladybirds by the Guide des Vins en Biodynamie and described as being a very well balanced wine, bursting with fruit. The 2011 vintage was already chosen in the 2013 guide. The high esteem in which this wine is regarded was also echoed in the Guide des Bonnes Affaires du Vin 2015 wine guide that selects the best value wines. It received a rating of 15/20.


Domaine Allegria

In the Languedoc, the Poivre de Mourvèdre 2012 red wine from Domaine Allegria has recently been heralded by Olivier Poussier, the World's Best Sommelier of 2000. He commented that this wine is "a rare pearl of pure mourvèdre. A very colourful wine that opens it arms to you with a concentration of spice and fruits.

 Guide Hachette 2015

Château Beau Rivage

Passing by the Bordeaux region, Château Beau Rivage is awarded a star in the Hachette 2015 wine guide for their Benjamin 2011 red wine. Delicate and complex aromas, and a seductive balance between fruit and tannins on the palate. The 2011 Clos la Bohème, the winery's Haut-Médoc Cru Borgeois wine, was also selected by the guide.
 Guide Bettane+Desseauve 2015

Chateau de la Bonnelière

And finishing with the Loire Valley, Château de la Bonneliere is referenced twice in the Bettane & Desseauve 2015 wine guide. The wine chosen by Gourmet Oydssey, the Clos de la Bonneliere 2012 was rated 14.5/20, and the winery's Chapelle 2011 red wine was chosen as a top pick for a wine to lay down.

We are delighted that the exceptional quality of the wine produced by our partner winemakers has once again been acknowledged and rewarded by the leading professionals.

Congratulations to all of our partners!
