One of the best Chardonnay is Belgian
This is not the first time we have talked to you about the Chant d'Eole domain in Quévy (Hainaut), and for good reason, as their record of achievements has been growing over the years! The domain has once again been voted the best Chardonnay in the world.
This year, the international competition that rewards the best Chardonnay in the world took place in Burgundy. A panel of over 300 experts studied no fewer than 546 samples from 32 countries and Belgian Chardonnay stood out once again.
This medal means that the estate has now received more than 20 international awards. They had already won the gold medal in London in 2020 in the same category. In 2021, they won a silver medal in Japan, alongside brands such as Taittinger and Lanson.
It must be said that while Belgian sparkling wines are undeniably successful, domain owner Hubert Ewbank does not intend to sit back. He has invested in a vast expansion project, with the hope of meeting demand as well as diversifying. The surface area of the domain should then reach 50 ha, making the Chant d'Eole the largest Belgian vineyard. To welcome visitors, in addition to the estate's restaurant, two seminar rooms and an auditorium will be created and the roof of the building will be converted into a rooftop space. If you decide to taste this year's gold medal winner, the Blanc de Blancs Brut, expect bubbles of great finesse, with a bouquet of white flowers and a fresh, citrusy note.
It is a treat for the eyes as well as the taste buds!
