Recognizing Gérard Bertrand
Gérard Bertrand's Château l’Hospitalet Grand Vin red 2017 is named World Champion Red Wine at the International Wine Challenge 2019
On Tuesday, 9 July, the wine world gathered at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London for the annual IWC awards dinner.
With 10,000 wines from all around the world tasted, and a very strict assessment process involving three-stage blind tasting by at least 12 different judges, the IWC is recognised as the most prestigious competition in the world.
The six presidents of the jury, Sarah Abbott MW, Tim Atkin MW, Oz Clarke, Dr. Jamie Goode, Charles Metcalfe and Peter McCombie MW, taste each wine awarded a medal to ensure that only the very best receive prizes.
Château l’Hospitalet Grand Vin AOP La Clape 2017 won the IWC Champion Red Wine 2019 category.
This award is international recognition. It rewards the painstaking work carried out in the vineyards and cellar, as well as Gérard Bertrand's commitment to biodynamic farming methods and protecting biodiversity.
