Across the newsdesk this week was an announcement from Alliances du Monde:

The first edition of Alliances du Monde® international Wine & Barrel competition will be held on October 29, 2013, in Noirlac Abbey, France.

In the heart of the most beautiful European oak forests, on the edge of the forest of Tronçais, for the first time, an international competition will bring together and select the best wines matured in oak barrels.

Its ambition is therefore to highlight the quality of wines, which benefit from the best wine/oak expression by attributing, each year, medals that are reliable and thus representative.

Thanks to its stringent methodology: limitation on the number of wines tasted by each judge, ideal tasting conditions, strict application of international standards, stringent selection of expert judges, and a scientific approach to the analysis of results.

Samples delivery deadline October 18, 2013
