Mundus Vini Gold Medal for Le Lion des Corbières

With 37 Grand Gold, 1,487 Gold and 1,358 Silver the Spring Tasting of the Grand International Wine Award MUNDUS VINI came to a close last Sunday. 260 international wine experts from 50 countries spent the six days critically judging almost 7,200 wines from 156 wine growing regions all over the world.

About 600 award-winning wines of the MUNDUS VINI Spring Tasting will be presented to the trade audience at the world's largest wine trade fair, the ProWein in Düsseldorf, taking place from 17 - 19 March 2019, at the MUNDUS VINI Tasting Area. The wines with a special award will be honoured on the first day of the trade fair at the high-calibre presentation ceremony, and the certificates presented to the vintners by the Board of MUNDUS VINI in person.

A self-taught wine grower, some have called him an organic intellectual, while the press dubbed Jeannot “the Lion of the Corbières”.  Jordi, one of Claude’s twins, has joined Domaines Auriol to ensure its long-term future and development by mapping out his own blueprint for innovation. Jordi pays tribute to his grandfather, Jean Vialade, or ‘Jeannot’, this extraordinary figure, by labelling Cicéron wines ‘Le Lion des Corbières’.
