Gilbert & Gaillard 2017 Tasting
18-05-2017
Ampliar

 

In April, the results of the international Gilbert & Gaillard competition regarding the wines and cavas of Catalonia were made public in Barcelona. In total, 249 wines from 104 different wineries were recognized.

 

 

Francois Gilbert, founder of the Gilbert & Gaillard magazine, made a global assessment of the results saying that "Catalonia has surprised us because of the authenticity of the land, because of the great commitment to native varieties and because each production area has been able to find its own identity, that which makes them exclusive." In fact, he insisted, "we have been able to taste several vintages during the course of the competition and we are happy because we have been able to see the evolution of the wine according to the land from which it is born."

 

 

As for the varieties, and reinforcing what the wine taster said about the native ones, he added that they have found the wines made from varieties such as Trepat, Sumoll, Picapoll and Garnacha Peluda particular interesting. "Varieties perhaps little known at an international level, but which express this authenticity of their territory which we mentioned."

 

 

Gilbert & Gaillard organizes these awards once a year together with INCAVI and evaluates the wines presented in the blind tastings. The tastings are global, where up to 12,000 wines from all the origins of the wine world being evaluated - and of these, about 700 were from Catalonia this year. One of the main novelties of the competition in 2017, is the implementation of a new service to bring the winning wine to the attention of the international market. It will be thanks to e-commerce, that from the month of June, will offer the products with medals through an online store from the publication´s website.

 

 

These prizes have three different categories: Gold + 90 points, awarded to79 wines and sparkling wines from 57 wineries; Gold awarded to 145 wines and sparkling wines from 92 wineries; and finally, Silver, awarded to 25 wines and sparkling wines from 21 wineries.

 

 

From Celler Malondro, we are happy to announce the scores:

 

Malondro Blanc 2015: Gold Plus

Malondro 2011: Gold

Coelum 2010: Silver

Besllum 2012: Gold

Celler Malondro was one of eight wineries who participated in "DO Montsant in Switzerland" in Zurich on 16th May.

 

 

WIne professionals had the oportunity to learn more about DO Montsant, the diversity of the wines, mainly made from Garnacha and Carignan that reflect the diverse soiils and microclimates within DO Montsant.

 

 

David Schwarzwälder, a well-known German journalist who specialises in Spanish wine and food gave a seminar to explain about the Montsant wine region in more detail with the opportunity to try a representative wine from each participating winery. Malondro Blanc 2015 which was awarded Gold Plus by Gilbert & Gaillard was well received. The combination of fruit, minerality and salty finish pleasantly surprised the participants. David Schwarzwälder has wide ranging experience with Spanish wines in Switzerland, Austria and Germany.

 

 

There was a Showroom before and after the seminar, where participants could try 24 wines. Nearly 70 wine professionals  including importers, distributors, specialist shops, specialist press and HORECA attended. Later on wine fans were invited to discover the wines from DO Montsant.

Celler Malondro was one of the 13 wineries from the Montsant Appellation (DO Montsant) that participated in the “Montsant USA Wine Tour”. A total of 40 wines were available for wine professionals to try. Almost 200 wine professionals attended events in Miami (Florida) and Los Angeles (California) to discover wines from the Montsant Appellation (DO Montsant) enabled by the DO Montsant and ACCIO.

 

Importers, distributors, sommeliers, specialised shops, press and restaurants attended the events in these two cities.

 

Each event began with a seminar given by renowned Sommelier Lucas Payà, renowned for his time as Sommelier at Ferran Adria’s restaurant El Bulli and who has significant experience in the North American market. The seminar provided insights into the land, climate, native grapes and characteristics of wines from DO Montsant.

 

This was followed by a showroom where professionals could try the wines from the participating wineries for themselves.

 

The USA market is the largest export market by volume for wines from Montsant.

 

This was an excellent opportunity for both wineries wanting to position their wines and to expand their presence in the US Market and for wine professionals in Miami and Los Angeles to learn about and experience the wines from DO Montsant for themselves.

 

Thank you to everyone who attended!

We shared the space with five other wineries which the Regulatory Council had enabled for the fourth year, in the area of Prodeca.

 

 


Prowein, is one of the most important professional meetings for the wineries of the DO Montsant, "especially as it is a trade fair in Germany, the second destination for the export of wines from DO Montsant" (according to the website of DO Montsant). Not only German citizens visited the trade fair these days, but also professionals from Holland, Denmark, Belgium and Switzerland were present, among other countries from around the world.

Patufet 2015 Presentation
14-03-2017
Ampliar

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today we would like to officially launch "Patufet", although this wine was presented in the program "Divendres" (meaning Friday) in TV3, which we are very pleased about. "Patufet" is a new range of young, crisp wine, following the essence and profile of Celler Malondro wines.

 

This little-great wine, was born to capture the attention of younger people or those who are just entering into the world of wine. It is an ideal introduction to wine tasting and enjoying the wines from Montsant, characterized by their minerality and balsamic notes thanks to the influences of its environment, but this time much more dynamic, with fruit and a little oak that is very well integrated.

 

It is easy to pair with food and excellent to share, the history of Patufet is reflected in many aspects of this wine:

 

- It is young and daring, much like the protagonist Patufet.

- It shares the same origins, the countryside.

- It pairs very well with chicken rice, just like Patufet´s mother makes in the story.

 

 

We would also like to announce that the wine Patufet will be in Falset Wine Fair 2017 (from 29th April to 1st May).

Come and try it for yourself!

 

And as the famous song from the story says:

 

 

"Patim, patam, patum, homes i dones del cap dret,

Patim, patam, patum, no trepitgeu en Patufet.”

On Monday 13th February 15 wineries, brought together by the Regulatory Council of the DO Montsant presented their wines to a hundred professionals. This act was aimed at professionals of the sector: importers, distributors, Horeca, specialized stores and press, amongst others.

 

The act of the DO Montsant in Munich began at 2pm with a Masterclass for a selection of 30 professionals, directed by sommelier Yvonne Heistermann. Following this, the DO Montsant wineries presented their wines in a showroom open to professionals until 8pm. In the last part of the showroom the general public and VIP clients of the invited companies were able to attend.

 

The trade mission in Germany, which is the second country by export volume for Montsant wines, is part of the international promotion strategy of the DO. It should be kept in mind that, according to the Regulatory Council: "Exports account for about 40% of the trade of this DO. And, in the case of Germany, an average of almost 500,000 bottles per year were exported between 2012-2015."

 

Celler Malondro presented their wines: Coelum, Malondro, Latria and Patufet, in this commercial mission to Munich, organized with the support of the ACCIO office in Berlin.

 

 

The president of the DO Montsant, said in a statement that "it is a good opportunity for the wineries to enter into or to expand their presence in the German market, but it is also about the DO Montsant brand, a key factor to gain position in competitive markets like this ".

 


The next meeting with the German market will be in March 2017 at Prowein 2017. Celler Malondro will be at Prowein 2017, as part of the DO Montsant island, like last year. This is a very important event in the sector to continue working to bring about fruitful trade agreements that increase the presence and value of our wines in Germany, and also in other countries.

 

Thank you very much to you all for being there.

See you in March at Prowein 2017!
