The Top 100 unveiled at the London Wine Fair
The Top 100 award-winning wine shave been unveiled at the Digital London Wine Fair.
The Sud de France Top 100 gives an authoritative, current snapshot of the Occitanie wine region, which is the largest in the world. Occitanie encompasses the Languedoc and the Roussillon vineyards, part of the Rhône Valley and the South-West. There is plenty of scope by the trade for new discovery, as 60% of the Top 100 winning wines are seeking UK distribution. Trophies were awarded to Best Red, Best White, Best Rosé, Best Sparkling and Best Dessert/Fortified.
Chairman Tim Atkin MW led 16 top writers and principal trade buyers in blind tasting through 459 wines, entered from 130 producers. Wines which express individual terroir, offer drinking enjoyment and memorability were selected and judges were also given the opportunity to identify a personal favourite coup de coeur choice.
Trade buyers may request their own individually selected sample sets via their registration for the digital London Wine Fair, or by directly contacting Bureau de la Région Occitanie, contactUK@suddefrance-dvpt.
