Out of more than 479 items from 19 countries, the Hungaria Rosé Extra Dry sparkling wine won a gold medal at the Effervescents du Monde World Competition in the Burgundy wine region, and it also got included in the top 10 list.
In the high-quality sparkling wine competition organised for the 18th time, an 80-member jury ranked the items at the Château des Ravatys in France in the second half of December.
According to turizmusonline.hu, this event is unique in terms of its scope, its strict methods, such as compliance with international wine competition rules, the rigorous selection of the panel of expert judges and their training in tasting methodology at the Institut Paul Bocuse, the individual assessment of each taster, and the faultless, quality-driven organisation: the limitation of the number of wines tasted per judge and the ideal tasting conditions (sensory isolation, proper tasting rhythm, etc.)
The goal of the event is to award reliable and representative medals each year, reflecting the founding motto of Effervescents du Monde®: diversity, quality, and high standards.
This time, the sparkling wines entered won a total of 35 gold and 115 silver medals, from which the Top 1 was selected.
According to the available information,
Hungaria’s brand manager, András Csomoly, said that “This is not only the success of Hungaria but also the continuation on the path of recognition for Hungarian sparkling wines and wines.”
The success is also noteworthy because it is the second year in a row (2019 and 2020) that the Hungaria rosé sparkling wine won a gold medal and was in the Top 10 in Effervescents du Monde, and also because, among the top 10, there is only one other item outside of the Hungarian one which is not from France.
It is also worth mentioning that the top 10 list, interestingly, includes 12 items because according to Effervescents du Monde: “Some wines are rigorously equal.”
