Our partner winemakers awarded at the Millésime Bio organic wine fair

The 22nd Millésime Bio wine fair for professionals of the wine trade gets underway next week, gathering together 800 organic winemakers from all around the world. During the show, the winners of the Challenge Millésime Bio 2015 wine competition are honoured, and this year sees two of Gourmet Odyssey's partner vineyards win awards.

All of our partner winemakers attend the wine fair. It's one of the annual not-to-miss events to meet professional clients, to present new vintages, and to search for new prospective clients. It's also the chance to catch up with fellow winemakers and to exchange on new techniques concerning organic winemaking.

Challenge Millésime Bio 2015 France

Challenge Millésime Bio is the international organic wine competiton of the Millésime Bio wine fair, and is presided over by a well known member of the wine trade. This year the honour was bestowed on Toshio Matsuura, a journalist from the Japanese wine and spirits magazine Wands, to direct the tastings.

The wine tastings took place on Tuesday 25th November 2014 at the Mas de Saporta in Lattes, near Montpellier. The jury tasted some 1250 samples and the winners have recently been announced.

Congratulations to two of our partner winemakers who received gold and bronze for the wines selected by Gourmet Odyssey for the Wine Experience.

  • Domaine Chapelle in Burgundy has been awarded a gold medal for the Clos des Cornières 2012, the wine chosen for Gourmet Odyssey's adoptive parents. The winery also saw its Chassagne Montrachet Premier Cru Morgeot 2012 win bronze.
  • Domaine la Cabotte in the Rhone Valley was selected for bronze for its Garance 2013 Cotes du Rhone Villages. This is also the wine chosen for the Gourmet Odyssey Wine Experience.

And finally, a special mention, also for Domaine la Cabotte, for having its Garance 2012 wine picked by the Revue du Vin de France wine magazine as one of Millésime Bio's "revelations", and as being a wine "to buy with your eyes closed!"

  • Hi Gourmet Odyssey Team,

    We adopted some vines for the 2012 harvest and are proud to hear of the success that Domaine Chapelle has achieved for the 2012 vintage.

    Please pass on our congratulations to the winemakers and the team at Domaine Chapelle.

    Kind regards

    Jean-Luc & Marie-Françoise
