Lyon International Competition 2016
Viña Valoria Reserva 2011 has won the gold medal in the Lyon International Competition.
Lyon is recognised as the capital of gastronomy and good taste, and so it was only natural that the city should be a showcase for the world’s best wines, and since 2015 the selection of the best beers, and spirits.
To make marking simpler and more homogeneous, a 100-point marking scale is used in the Lyon Competition, as it is in all international competitions. The scale allows tasters to decode every aspect of a sample, and then calculate the final score. Tasters receive copies of the marking scale before the tasting so that they can become familiar with it.
