We recently received the latest results we expected. We were curious to know the wine ratings we had sent to the famous Wine Spectator magazine, and our patience was rewarded.
As every year, we participate in many national and international competitions with our entire range of wines. Summer is coming, so we though that is time to make a nice summary of our awards. We are very proud of our wines, recognized throughout the world!
The Pinot noir is an ancient grape variety known ever since the time of the Romans and the Cistercian monks's. It is the number one star in many countries, especially in the United States. The French region of Burgundy is nowadays the best-known wine cultivating region of Pinot noir with its' 10580 hectares. In this region we can find the most expensive bottles of Pinot (for example the Henri Jayer- Richebourg Grand Cru's average price is 9802,20 euros for one bottle)! However, the region of Languedoc-Roussillon is not falling behind. It exploits "only" 2100 hectares of Pinot noir, but it still has had a great success in the U.S. before the fraud scandal which, unfortunately, touched our lovely region. Nevertheless, the IGP Pays d'Oc still is the most exported wine to the U.S. on the world-wide scale
