Bronze Medal – What does it mean?

It is know that the CSWWC does not officially award medals lower than Silver, however, we take a very keen interest in theoretical Bronze winners.   With a Bronze from a classic sparkling wine appellation, it is easy for producers to submit a magnum the next year and almost guarantee a Silver or even a Gold because the difference in quality between a regular 75cl bottle and a magnum of effectively the same wine is truly [...]

Loïc’s last legacy

The 2007 vintage is the last Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs to be launched under the auspices of Loïc Dupont, the motorcycle-mad, quiet man of Champagne, as he hands over the keys for Taittinger's magnificent cellars to Alexandre Ponnavoy.
