The Wines of British Columbia Shine at The Judgment of BC Wine Tasting |
Judgement of BC sign The Wines of British Columbia shone at The Judgment of BC Wine Tasting with Steven Spurrier and DJ Kearney today. Steven Spurrier, the Consultant Editor at Decanter magazine, headed the famous Judgement of Paris in 1976 (which was made into the movie "Bottle Shock"). The Judgement of Paris carried out two blind tasting comparisons: one of Chardonnays and another of red wines (Bordeaux wines from France and Cabernet Sauvignon wines from California). The surprise to the French judges was that a California wine rated best in each category, and brought world-wide attention to California wines. The Wines of British Columbia were put to the test at the Judgment of BC today by pitting 12 BC wines (6 Chardonnay and 6 Syrah) against 12 acknowledged global benchmarks from around the world. Which wines were compared and how did they rate? I highlighted the BC wines in red to help you see how we did. CHARDONNAY RESULTS ORDER Soumah Chardonnay Single Vineyard 2013
