Last night in London, at the International Wine Challenge* gala dinner, Pierre Vincent from the Domaine de la Vougeraie won the Trophy for Red Winemaker of the Year 2014.
In June, the Corton-Charlemagne 2011 from the Domaine de la Vougeraie, made by Pierre Vincent, scooped four IWC gold medals for Best French White Wine, Best Corton-Charlemagne, Best Chardonnay and Best White Burgundy.
On 16 July, a second tasting of all the gold medal winners picked out the international trophie winners including the Domaine de la Vougeraie.
The IWC Red Winemaker of the Year trophy was once again awarded to Pierre Vincent, who had previously won the honor in 2010.
For the past few years, the Domaine de la Vougeraie has often been lauded by the IWC. Last year, the Vougeot Premier Cru Le Clos Blanc de Vougeot 2010 Monopole won three trophies: the International Chardonnay Trophy, the White Burgundy Trophy and the French White Trophy. In 2012, the Domaine’s Charmes-Chambertin Les Mazoyères won the Charmes Chambertin Trophy, the Red Burgundy Trophy and the International Pinot Noir Trophy. In previous years, this distinction was attributed to the Clos Vougeot 2006 and the Bonnes Mares 2008, which allowed them both to scoop the IWC Organic Trophy.
*The International Wine Challenge is one of the most prestigious wine competitions in the world with more than 14,000 wines from 50 countries being tasted by 300 professional tasters who are mainly Masters of Wine.
