dwwa 2018: quest for the best

Andrew Jefford confers with judges (Photograph: Nina Assam (www.ninaassam.com))What shall we call it? A festival of winemaking endeavour? The greatest benchmarking exercise in the wine world? A treasure hunt for winemaking talent? A general assembly of global viticultural terroirs? It’s all of these things, and more – and it’s now 15 years old. We celebrated this milestone with an ever-widening pool of expert judges, with new refinements to our judging system, and with wines from more countries than ever before (this year’s 16,972 entries included wines from Bolivia, Colombia, Egypt, Kazakhstan, Malta, Poland, Sweden and Taiwan).During the first week of judging at London’s Royal Victoria Dock, all of the wines are tasted and discussed by specialist panels. Judges fly in from every continent to take part. The bottles may leave…

dwwa: the judging process

The Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA) are rooted in regionality. Wines are judged first and foremost within their region, by a panel of experts in that region. The judges look for typicity above all, rewarding wines that are true to their terroir. Turn to p10 to find out more about the credentials of our DWWA co-Chairs and Regional Chairs, as well as a list of judges for each region.Flights of wines are organised to ensure judges do not jump between contrasting styles in short time-frames, or risk palate fatigue by tasting very tannic wines over a long period. Judges taste between 75 to 80 wines per day, in optimum conditions – seated, in a plain, white room, under natural light. They taste from Riedel glasses, in an environment free of…

chandon

Chandon was born in France, in the 1950s, from the pioneering vision of Robert-Jean de Vogüé, then President of Moët & Chandon, who pushed the boundaries of traditional champagne elaboration by adapting ancestral savoir-faire and techniques to new world terroirs and cultures whilst never foregoing the same indisputable quality.Robert-Jean de Vogüé founded Bodegas Chandon, in Mendoza, Argentina, in 1959, followed by Chandon California and Chandon do Brasil in 1973. Chandon´s pioneering spirit did not end when he retired in 1972. With a strong sense of collaboration and mutual enrichment, supported by best-in-class winemakers and courageous entrepreneurs, Chandon Australia was inaugurated in 1986. More recently, Chandon India, in 2013, and Chandon China, in 2014, have opened up new frontiers in emerging markets – regions where Chandon plays a leading role in…
