Dom Pérignon 1998 P2 in Magnum has been named Supreme World Champion and Best French Sparkling Wine in the 2017 Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships (CSWWC). Trentodoc producer Ferrari Lunelli was crowned as Sparkling Wine Producer of the Year 2017 at the annual Awards Dinner in Vintner’s Hall, London. Founder and head judge Tom Stevenson said: “After a hard fought contest, uncovering some exceptional sparkling wines from 29 different countries, we were delighted to see Dom Pérignon Chef de Caves Richard Geoffroy collect the ultimate crown for the very first time.”

This year the Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships saw entries from more countries than ever before. Stevenson said, “It’s our mission not just to promote world-class wines, but also to discover and reward new and exciting wines from established and emerging regions across the world. I was particularly pleased to see Chandon Argentina scoop two trophies this year – National Champion and World Champion Rosé for the Chandon Rosé NV.
