The famous French critic Michel Bettane, co-publisher every year of the Bettane Guide and Desseauve of the wines of France, gives us the honor to preside over the jury for the second consecutive year! The team of experts Bettane + Desseauve organizes tasting shows (Grand Tasting and Winelab), awards prizes (Prix Plaisir), advises major brands, publishes its magazine (En Magnum), manages websites (bettanedesseauve.com, mybettanedesseauve.fr).
Like last year, this contest was built in close collaboration with Manuel Peyrondet, a young sommelier with a meteoric career. He won the Ruinart Trophy in 2005, the Master of Port the following year, before becoming Best Sommelier of France in 2008, then Best Worker of France sommelier in 2011! He then founded Chais d'Œuvre, a club of wine lovers and buyers, which today counts nearly a thousand registered members.
The jury is not exhaustive, we prefer to keep a little secret ... patience !
