Sauvignon blanc thrives in a wide variety of climates and on different soils, and can be used to produce dry and sweet white wines, both varietals and blends.
Over the past few years, Sauvignon blanc has experienced huge popularity in international markets. Driven by producers in the New World, primarily by New Zealand, the variety has become the go-to grape for freshness, elegance and harmonious gourmet food pairings. For many consumers previously only familiar with the prestigious appellations made from this grape variety, rather than its actual name, it has been an eye-opener.
Also, the international scope of this competition is essential given the site-expressiveness shown by Sauvignon blanc. Depending on the weather patterns and production sites, it varies tremendously, acting as a mirror for vintage variation and vineyard sites. Throughout the world, Sauvignon has the ability to produce very different wines, and the Concours Mondial du Sauvignon is there to differentiate between the myriad styles on offer.

The aroma wheel along with a complete description of your wines can be downloaded at the end of every tasting session.

The tasting notes are compiled from the panel’s tasting comments using Artificial Intelligence that has been specially designed to understand and analyse wine descriptions in a number of languages. They complement the ‘score out of 100’ in the assessment of the wine and provide qualitative information about the perception of the wines.
