Fine blends, aromatic whites from 2014 vintage
GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – Gamay, Pinot Noir, Chasselas, Cabernet Franc and a blend were the official Geneva stars Wednesday evening at the canton’s annual wine awards, the Sélection des vins de Genève.
The awards evening at the Hôtel de Ville shows off some of the best wines in the region, 56 gold medal winners out of the 654 wines submitted.
A panel of mainly oenologists and the cantonal wine office’s technical experts judge the wines.
Five special prizes are awarded by various groups and these are chosen by them from among the gold medal winners.
Two wineries made a particularly impressive show, both of them from Peissy. Cave Les Crêtets won two of the special prizes including the one for the wine with the highest overall number of points.
Domaine Les Perrières won a record nine gold medals and the Tradition Trophy.
