Chardonnay stands out for a third time this year

Last June, this vintage also ranked best chardonnay in oak barrels in competition with wines from world wine regions in the state of New York in the United States. Indeed, our cuvée won the only Double Gold medal in the “Chardonnay oaked” category at the Finger Lakes International Wine & Spirits Competition 2022.

This cuvée also won a Silver medal last June at the biggest awards in the field of Canadian wine, the National Wine Awards of Canada 2022 competition in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

 

 

“Sweet is revenge in the heart of the winemaker!”

In this Nordic viticulture, there have been many prejudices. But with passion, perseverance and discipline we have been able to demonstrate that not only is viticulture here to stay, but we are now achieving high quality standards. Quebec is gradually but certainly taking its place on the map of world viticulture.

Skeptics will be confounded!

– Charles-Henri de Coussergues, Vigneron co-owner of the Vignoble de l’Orpailleur & Union Libre
