La Milana and Xarel·lo Nosodos+ 2013 awarded medals in the 2015 Millesime Bio competition

A few weeks ago the results were published for the French competition Millesime Bio 2015, a competition that is now in its 8th edition that acknowledges the best world-wide ecological wines. 

The competition is held at the end of November in the south of France, in Montpellier, and the results for the awarded wines are given in the fair that has the same name as the competition, which will be held on the 26th, 27th and 28th of January 2015 in Montpellier. 

1.250 wines have been presented and evaluated in total, of which 374 have been awarded a medal. Specifically, 85 wines have been awarded gold medals, 171 silver and 118 bronze. 

Two of our wines have been awarded; the red La Milana 2011 with a gold medal and Xarel·lo Nosodos+ 2013 with a bronze medal. La Milana has been the only red wine, from amongst the Catalan designations of origin represented here and that have been awarded medals for some of their wines, that has been worthy of a gold medal. Therefore, the competition positions it as the best Catalan red wine from amongst all the wines presented here. 

We would also highlight the bronze medal awarded to the Xarel·lo Nosodos+ 2013 white wine, given the fact that it has achieved this good result being a wine that is produced without using added preservatives and antioxidants, simply following a careful and select line of work in order to maximise and maintain the quality of a great grape like Xarel·lo.
