Chardonnay du Monde

This event is unique in terms of its scope, its method and therefore its ambition:

International in scope:

  • More than 35 countries.
  • More than 900 wine samples.
  • More than 300 international expert judges, including 55% from outside France.

A strict method:

  • Compliance with international wine competition rules and strict application of the ISO 9002 Quality Assurance standard.
  • Guaranteed implementation of scoring criteria for international competitions.
  • Rigorous selection of the panel of expert judges.
  • Training in tasting methodology at the Institut Paul Bocuse, with individual assessment of each taster.
  • Faultless, quality-driven organisation: limitation of the number of wines per jury and ideal tasting conditions (sensory isolation, proper tasting rhythm, etc.)
  • Secure computer processing of results by the Services Actions Qualité company.


  • To award reliable and thus representative medals each year, reflecting the founding motto of Chardonnay du Monde®: diversity, quality and high standards.

Chardonnay du Monde - has the approval and the services of the DGCCRF French Estate Ministry of Economy, Finances and Industry. (21rd january 1997)
