The Loire celebrates Sauvignon and its Concours Mondial success

Posted on

The fourth Concours Mondial du Sauvignon took place on April 26 and 27 in the spectacular setting of Château de Blois, here in the Loire Valley. The contest aims to promote wines made from the varietal by increasing awareness of the comprehensive range of Sauvignon blanc wines world wide and providing a cue for consumers at point of sale.

The Concours Mondial du Sauvignon is more than just a competition between producers and appellations. It is primarily aimed at fostering dialogue and creating a meeting point for industry specialists. Producers, wine makers, sommeliers, distributors, journalists and opinion formers from all strands of the industry – in all some 60 judges representing twenty or so nationalities (France, Belgium, England, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Italy, Chile, New Zealand…) evaluated the 807 wines entered by 22 producer countries. These included New Zealand, Chile, France, Spain and Italy, as well as countries like Greece, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Romania and Slovakia.

Here are this year’s medal winning Loire wines, representing around 45% of the total awards:
