A shower of medals for Vignobles Bonfils wines

The V label by Château Vaugelas (AOP Corbières), considered to be the best Corbières wine at the Mundus Vini competition, continues to be a crowd-pleaser! It was awarded a gold medal at the Concours des Grands Vins de France in Macôn, as were the 140 label (AOP Corbières) and the oaky, spicy Château Millegrand, aged in oak casks (AOP Minervois).

Next stop is Germany where Château Vaugelas – V and Château Millegrand – Fût de chêne also came away with gold at the Berliner Wine Trophy, along with the Le Castell red wine by Château L’Esparrou (AOP Côtes du Roussillon).

In Belgium, the red wines Château Capitoul – Grand Terroir (AOP La Clape) and Château L’Esparrou – Le Castell won gold at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles. On top of these distinctions came ‘favourite pick’ accolades for the 140 and V labels by Château Vaugelas, its white Les Falaises (AOP Languedoc) and the rosé by Domaine de Cibadiès.

The Vinalies Nationales awarded the red wines Château Vaugelas – V and Château Vaugelas - 140, Château L’Esparrou – Le Castell, Château Millegrand – Fût de chêne and the ever-popular Chardonnay by Domaine de Cibadiès (IGP Pays d’Oc):

Right from the outset, the lovely golden yellow hue with its green tints elegantly sported by this 2020 Chardonnay was captivating. Its wonderful ripeness is exuded on the nose which shows ripe white-fleshed fruit overtones and transports us to summer! The floral and toast aromas add subtlety, imparting great complexity to the aromatic spectrum […]

Lastly, for the rosés, Capitoul – Lycia (AOP Languedoc), which was already selected as one of the finest summer rosés by the Revue des Vins de France, once again shone and brought home the top medal from The Global Rosé Masters 2021 competition.
