We are delighted to announce that Nyetimber Classic Cuvee 2010 in Magnum as well as Classic Cuvee MV in Jeroboam and Magnum have been recognised with Gold Awards at the Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships 2020.
The Jeroboam was based around the 2011 harvest, our first ever multi-vintage blend. Classic Cuvee MV in Magnum, with 2014 base year, was also recognised, making a total of three gold awards won by Nyetimber at the competition this year.
‘CSWWC is one of the ultimate benchmarking competitions in the world and we value these results highly. It is exciting to have won gold for both the 2010 Classic Cuvee, and two Multi-vintage bottlings, including our inaugural 2011 base. This re-affirms our belief that an ‘MV’ style is about more than just consistency, with reserves bringing also quality and complexity.’
Cherie Spriggs, Head Winemaker, Nyetimber
As they themselves say, now in its 6th year, The Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships (CSWWC) is an international sparkling wine competition for the new generation of sparkling wine consumers. It is decided by a panel of three judges, Tom Stevenson, Essi Avellan MW and Simon Stockton using Riedel glasses. Each judge assesses the wines individually and blind, writes a tasting note and awards a score. The scores are totalled and discussed to reach a final collective decision on each wine.
