Call for entries to ‘International Gamay Competition’

Inter Beaujolais has called for entries to its second ‘International Gamay Competition’.

Open to any international producer creating wines from a minimum of 85% Gamay and featuring a new category for older vintages, the competition will be judged in Lyon on January 14, 2012 by a panel of top winemakers, experts, merchants and critics.

The competition aims to raise consumer and trade awareness of the grape variety that produces lighter, fruity, easy wines with low tannins, but also displays complexity and ageing potential.

The January 2011 competition saw over 600 entries from 11 different countries and 167 medals being awarded.

Inter Beaujolais communication director, Anthony Collet, Said: “Following the success of the first competition last year, we received a very large amount of positive feedback and interest from many countries around the world, validating the competition as a great tool to gain international recognition of the Gamay grape variety”.
