The "Young Talents of Champagne" Awards

Organised in partnership with the "Dites Nous Tout" company, the Young Talents of Champagne awards aim to shine a spotlight on the wine-growing region and talent of its wine-growers, and give the public the opportunity to learn more about the Champagne terroir and its different flavours.

A shortlist of 10 wine-growers are brought together in 4 categories for the awards, which are based on the Jeunes Talents de l'Année format. The winners of the 4 categories (chardonnay, pinot noir, pinot meunier and rosé) and the "People's Choice Award" are chosen following an open tasting session organised by the Tourist Office of Epernay. This 3rd edition culminated in an awards ceremony on 17 October at the De Castellane Champagne House in Epernay at which the following happy winners were presented with their trophies:
