Albet i Noya wines receive 7 medals in the 2017 edition of the French guide Gilbert & Gaillard

Yesterday evening, on Wednesday, 26th April, at the auditorium of the Department of Agriculture, Livestock, Fishing, and Food in Barcelona, there was an award ceremony to give out the medals and awards for the 2017 edition of the French guide Gilbert & Gaillard, one of the most highly recognised and prestigious guides in the world of wine.  

As far as our wines go, the evening was highly satisfactory, since they won a total of 7 medals between the Gold+, Gold, and Silver—two more medals than in 2016.  
The wines winning prizes this year were: La Milana 2013 and Ocell de Foc 2014 with the Gold+ Medal (wines starting at 90 points); the Reserva Martí 2009, the Belat 2011, and 3 Macabeus 2015, with Gold Medals, and the Syrah Col·lecció 2013 and El Blanc XXV 2013, with Silver Medals.  

This year, the red wine Reserva Martí won the same medal as last year, but the rest of the wines are all newly included and/or new prize-winners, which is positive, since having new wines winning awards from this guide just adds to our success.

The other winning wines were the Clàssic Penedès Brut 21 2014 and the Col·lecció Chardonnay 2015 with silver medals and the red wine La Milana 2013 with a bronze medal.  

The results of the international organic and biodynamic wine contest 2017 Millésime Bio came out a few days ago, with very good news for us. Of the nine wines entered in the contest, four won medals, with the gold medal won for the second year in a row by the red wine Reserva Martí 2009 standing out. The other wines that won medals were the Clàssic Penedès Brut 21 and the Col·lecció Chardonnay 2015 with silver medals and La Milana 2013 with a bronze medal. 
Besides that, this year the Reserva Martí 2009 was the only Catalan wine to win a gold medal. 

The fair named after the contest, Millésime Bio, will be held in Marseille from 30th January to 1st February, and it will be the meeting point
for organic and biodynamic vineyards and wine cellars from all over the world and our wines will be there. Besides this, during the fair the awards will also be handed out to all of the wines that have won medals in this year’s contest.

The Peñín Guide Gives 14 Albet i Noya Wines over 90 Points

The results of the 2017 Peñín Guide were published recently, and our wines got an exceptional score this year, with 14 wines scoring from 90 to 93 points

Specifically, three of these wines got a score of 93 points, the highest of all of the wines ranked—one more wine than last time. There were two red wines, Belat and La Milana, and the sparkling wines Clàssic Penedès, Brut 21 Barrica, which were given this score by the wine tasters from the Peñín Guide.  

Next, with 92 points, are El Blanc XXV and two red wines, Reserva Martí and Ocell de Foc. They are followed by 100% Xarel·lo and El Fanio, with 91 points, and lastly, with 90 points, seven more items, including white, red, sweet, and sparkling wines: 3 Macabeus, Chardonnay Col·lecció, Lignum white Syrah Col·lecció, Dolç Adrià, Brut Nature Reserva 3, and Brut 21.  

These scores make us the vineyard with the greatest number of wines ranked of all the wines from the Penedès denomination of origin, and the second-highest-ranking vineyard of all Catalonia, after Castillo de Perelada, which had 17 wines scoring over 90 points within one denomination of origin.  

It must be kept in mind that the Peñín Guide is the most prestigious guide to wines from Catalonia and Spain, with editions in German, English, and Japanese, making it an indispensable point of reference both nationally and internationally. It is used by sommeliers, wine lovers, journalists, importers, etc. from all over the world to choose the wines to be included on their wine lists.
