    Corks have been popping all over the world this week as the Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships has been  presenting its awards through a series of online announcements and articles on The Buyer.

    Today the CSWWC rolls out the carpet to the best performing Champagnes and sparkling wines in its 2021 competition with the unveiling of its World Champion Trophy Awards with the Best in Class winners announced earlier in the week  batting it out win one of the coveted CSWWC trophies.

    The top three prizes in the competition were

    • Supreme World Champion Trophy: Dom Ruinart 2004 Rosé in Magnum.

    • The Chairman’s Trophy: Carassia NV Rosé 

    • The Tony Jordan Rising Star Trophy: Abrau-Durso Russian Sparkling Wine House

    Tom Stevenson says the bar for quality in the CSWWC gets higher every year

    Founder and chair of judges Tom Stevenson said: “Last year was memorable for obvious reasons, but who could have imagined at the start of 2020 that we would still be battling a pandemic in 2021, even though we were even less sure of finding a single working vaccine. Yet we have attracted more than 1,000 entries of extraordinary quality into our niche competition for the second year running. The bar was set high from day one and the Trophy count certainly reflects this. However, it is not only our mission to promote world class wines, but also to discover and reward new and exciting wines from established and emerging regions across the world.

    “The biggest surprises for me were Japan, Russia and Sicily. Although Japan received only one silver, it clearly showed the potential this country has for serious sparkling wine and we look forward to a wider range of Japanese entries in the future.”

    Italy was one of the star performers with so many of its regions picking up Golds and trophies. Stevenson said he wanted to bring people’s attention to what he sees as the “incredible breath of medals that have been awarded to Italian sparkling wines this year”. He added: “This is a country that continues to push boundaries and produce top quality sparkling wines.  From the north of Italy in Franciacorta and Trentodoc regions, to Prosecco and Lambrusco, all the way down to Sicily with one particular winery there, Azienda Agricola G Milazzo, being showered with medals this year.”

    Sicily really is on the move when it comes to sparkling wines: “We were surprised last year when Sicily won two gold medals and four silvers, as it is not the first place that comes to mind when asked to name somewhere with sparkling wine potential, but they took those awards as encouragement and dumbfounded us with no less than five golds and 11 Silvers,” said Stevenson.
