The Domaine de la Vougeraie has once again been crowned with two prestigious Champion Trophies at the 2012 International Wine Challenge, repeating its success in 2011. Hosted in London in September, the International Wine Challenge is one of the most important competitions in the wine world with over 13,000 samples entered every year.
Once the gold, silver and bronze medals and commended wines are decided, the gold medal-winners are then re-tasted to decide which are worthy of Trophy status. The Trophy winners are then tasted again to establish the Champion Trophy winners.
The Domaine de la Vougeraie’s grand cru Charmes-Chambertin Les Mazoyères 2010 was awarded the IWC Champion Red Wine Trophy, from a field of 50. The wine had already won the Charmes Chambertin Trophy, the Red Burgundy Trophy and the International Pinot Noir Trophy.
The Domaine de la Vougeraie also won the Len Evans Champion Trophy, which is awarded for outstanding performance and consistency over the previous five years of the IWC. This is the first time a French estate has won this prestigious accolade.
The Domaine de la Vougeraie came home with a fitting collection of awards from its fifth appearance at the IWC.
