Final call for Champagne Masters 2018 entries
Final entries for The Drinks Business Champagne Masters are now being accepted ahead of the upcoming deadline.
Producers wishing to take part have until 1 August to enter and send in their samples. Now in its eighth year, The Champagne Masters is the only Champagne blind tasting in the UK. The competition will reward the best wines in the following categories: Vintage, Non-Vintage, Blanc de Blancs, Rosé, Prestige Cuvée, Blanc de Noirs, Alternative Grape Varieties and Design and Packaging.
An expert panel of judges composed exclusively of Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers, senior buyers and Champagne experts will judge the wines, chaired by db editor-in-chief Patrick Schmitt MW.
The wines will be tasted blind and the panel will award the best wines with medals from Bronze through to Gold. ‘Master’ is reserved for the exceptional and standout wines of the day.
The results of the tasting and accompanying analysis will be published in the drinks business magazine, online, on social media and also in the Hong Kong edition.
The cost is £140 per entry, and three samples of each submitted wine will be required to insure against damage.
