BWW 2021 – Top 10 Champagnes of the World have been selected

Rare Champagne 2008 is the Winner!

BWW – Best Wine of the World Competition 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.

The BWW 2021competition was held in the world's largest wine information service - tastingbook.com. 20,4675 wines received in total over 3 million votes from 190,000 wine professionals and wine lovers from 115 countries during the three months voting period.

After the voting period, only 100 most voted wines in six different categories remained in the Finals, organized in December 2020. The six main categories included red wine, white wine, rose wine, sparkling wine, fortified wine, and champagne. Under each category, the best wines were also awarded according to price level and country categories. 

In the Finals the wines were evaluated and ranked two different times as blind by the jury of Tastingbook.com Professionals (selected Judges from over 11 000 Pros: Wine writes, bloggers, MW's. Wine dealers etc.)


In BWW Competition 2021, the Best Champagne of the World -title was awarded to the Rare Champagne Millésime 2008.

”I am very proud Rare Millésime 2008 is awarded Best Champagne of the World. It is a great recognition for this coming vintage, that is the 12th of the Rare Champagne library. 

We took our time in crafting this 2008 vintage. The cold 2008 year has bestowed an intense, taut minerality upon the Chardonnay grapes, along with remarkable freshness and unparalleled longevity. It was necessary to wait for the right moment when it burst into bloom.

For me, Rare Millésime 2008 embodies the infinite, with its unlimited, rich, constantly present youth and freshness.

Rare Millésime 2008 is true to the Rare Champagne signature. Its spring-like purity heralds unlimited growth.”

Régis Camus, Cellar Master for Rare Champagne
