Only 53 wines got a rating above 93 Points; of these 53 wines, the 2021 Monte Xanic wine won the Great Golden Bacchus and Monte Xanic Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2021 won the Silver Bacchus.
The judging panels of this international competition consisted of masters of wine, masters of sommelier, specialized critics, and oenologists from different parts of the world and who tasted the wine blindly.
The Challenge International Du Vin 2023 is France’s oldest international wine competition. Its main characteristic is that every judging panel of wine tasters consists of four members: a technician, a winemaker, a distributor, and an expert consumer.
