The International Wine Challenge 

Every year, the International Wine Challenge (IWC) acknowledges and celebrates the world's top winemakers. Now in its 38th year, the IWC is recognised as the most rigorous, impartial and influential annual wine competition in the world. 

In a highly rigorous judging process, each wine Is assessed 'blind' and rated for its faithfulness to style, region and vintage. All medal-winning wines are tasted at least three times: first by a minimum of two judging panels, then by two of the competition's co-chairs who confirm the panels' assessments. The IWC judging teams include international wine industry experts and influencers, commercial decision makers and MWs; they work together to identify the highest quality wines each year from the 52 wine-producing countries represented in the competition. 

Champagne Devaux's unique terroir 

Champagne Devaux have been making champagne since 1846, always with a distinctly contemporary edge. Their Collection D, Cceur des Bar and Les Classiques ranges, their Rose des Riceys and Coteaux Champenois still wines and the inimitable Stenope made in collaboration with Michel Chapoutier, all reflect the unique history and expertise inherent in the House and the terroirs of Cote des Bar.
