Bordeaux celebrates Sauvignon and its Concours Mondial

The fifth Concours Mondial du Sauvignon took place on April 11 and 12 in Bordeaux where the competition began in 2010. The contest aims to promote wines made from the varietal by increasing awareness of the comprehensive range of Sauvignon blanc wines worldwide and providing a cue for consumers at point of sale.

The organisers of the Concours Mondial du Sauvignon have set up a steering committee comprising eight members of the wine industry whose aim is to build up an information database providing dedicated literature for the industry and consumers. Despite its international ubiquity, Sauvignon blanc undoubtedly has yet to reveal many of its qualities and idiosyncrasies (find out more…)

The next competition will be held in spring 2015 in Friuli Venezia Giulia, a major producer of Sauvignon wines, in collaboration with the Consorzio dei Colli Orientali.
