    BWW 2017

    BWW-The Best Wine of the World-competition is by far the toughest wine competition on this planet. Unlike any other industry competition, only 1% of the wines involved will be awarded.

    The BWW competition was held in the world’s largest wine information service – Tastingbook.com. Over 22.500 wines received in total 1.333.896 votes from 620.000 wine professionals and winelovers from 105 countries during the three months voting period. After the voting period, only 180 most voted wines in six different categories accessed into the finals, which were organised in January 2018. In the finals the wines were assessed and ranked three different times as blind by the panels of Tastingbook Pros. (selected judges from over 7000 pros: Wine writes, bloggers, MW’s. Wine makers etc.) 

    The six main categories included red wine, white wine, rose wine, sparkling wine, fortified wine and champagne categories. Under each category, the best wines were awarded also according to price level and country categories. The Title above all categories ­­– the Best Wine of the World 2017 – was given to the wine that gained the highest scores in the finals. In BWW Competition 2017 the Best Wine of the World -title was awarded to Harlan Estate 2013 – Napa Valley /California, USA. 

    BWW is the largest wine competition in the world, whether measured by the number of wines, the number of consumers involved or the judges taking part.

    BEST CHAMPAGNE OF THE WORLD

    Best Champagne of the World: Winner: Dom Perignon 2002, Champagne, France

    “I remember the year 2002 for the golden light and Indian summer after the rain, which allowed the grapes to mature to an unexpected level. Vintage 2002 is giving and approachable, richly sophisticated, but with a multifarious character that is still difficult to comprehend in its entirety. When it was initially released, this Vintage left me curious about the heights it could reach. And at times I believe its expression may be the closest to the Dom Pérignon aesthetic ideal,” said Richard Geoffroy, Dom Pérignon Chef de Cave. “We are incredibly grateful and humbled that Dom Pérignon Vintage 2002 has been named the Best Champagne of the World by consumers and professionals, because this recognition honors the essence of Dom Pérignon’s creative ambition.”
