BWW2023: A White Wine Spectacle Like Never Before!


In a dazzling culmination of taste, expertise, and a celebration of the finest, the BWW2023 competition has unveiled its crown jewels - the Best White Wines of the World! With a staggering 4,600 of the world's most exquisite white wines locked in fierce competition, the journey to the pinnacle was nothing short of epic.

The People's Choice and Expert's Verdict: A Harmonious Union

This year, it was the collective voice of both the wine enthusiasts and seasoned professionals that brought forth the crème de la crème. They voted, they sampled, and they championed their favorites, culminating in the selection of the 40 most distinguished white wines for the ultimate showdown.

But the true test awaited, as each finalist was subjected to the meticulous scrutiny of a double-blind tasting. Twenty-three wine virtuosos from nine countries, armed with palates finely tuned by years of experience, left no nuance unexplored.

A Grand Overture to Excellence: The Winners

The climax of this vinous symphony revealed the dazzling star of the show, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Montrachet 2018, a name that resonates with excellence in every drop. It claimed the coveted title of Best White Wine of the World and left an indelible mark on the world of wine.

A slight surprise was in store as Penfolds Yattarna 2022 gracefully glided into second place, representing Australia with elegance and finesse. Domaine des Comets Lafon Montrachet 2019 secured the third position, a tribute to the timeless French winemaking tradition.

The fourth and fifth spots were once again claimed by the land of terroir and savoir-faire, France, with Ramonet Batard-Montrachet 2019 and Haut-Brion Blanc 2018 making their mark. France, the guardian of wine heritage, claimed over 40% of all accolades, reaffirming its supremacy in the world of viticulture.

Unveiling the Surprises: Italy and Portugal Shine

But the BWW2023 was not without its delightful surprises. Italy emerged as a revelation, with Monteverro 2019 being crowned as Italy's best white wine. A testament to Italy's evolving winemaking landscape.

And from the shores of Portugal came an unexpected star, Niepoort Redoma Branco Reserva 2020, capturing the essence of Portuguese winemaking brilliance.

What's Next on the Vinous Horizon?

As the wine world eagerly awaits the unveiling of the world's best champagnes and dessert wines next week, the anticipation is palpable. BWW2023 continues to raise its glass to the dedication and artistry of winemakers from around the globe, promising another round of celebrations and toasts to the very best in every sip.
