At a recent tasting in London of Pinot Noir wines from around the world, Champagne de Barfontarc was awarded a Silver Medal for its Blanc de Noirs. The Global Masters tasting, concentrating solely on wines from the Pinot Noir grape variety was held earlier in 2014 and involved wines from across the globe, tasted blind by a panel of experts and judged solely on quality.
In a crowded wine competition arena, The Drinks Business Global Pinot Noir Masters stands out for its assessment of wines purely by grape variety rather than region. Divided only by price bracket and,
for ease of judging, whether the style was oaked or unoaked, the blind tasting format allowed wines to be
assessed without prejudice about their country of origin.
Wines were scored out of 100, with those gaining over 95 points being awarded the top title of Master. Those
earning over 90 points were given a Gold, those over 85 points a Silver and those over 80 points a Bronze.
The wines were judged by Masters of Wine and Master Sommeliers
