The 18th edition of the Master of Port took place on 21 October at the Embassy of Portugal in Paris, in the presence of the Ambassador of Portugal in France, Mr. Jorge Torres-Perreira.
The 4 Presidents and Jury members, represented by Mrs. Edith CAYARD, President of the Union of Large Brands of Porto, Mr. Philippe FAURE-BRAC, President of the Union of French Sommellerie, Mr. Gilberto IGREJAS, President of the Institute of Wines of the Douro and Porto, and Mr. George SANDEMAN, President of Wine in Moderation, raised Gaëtan BOUVIER to the rank of Master of Port.
His perfect mastery of the prestigious restoration codes, the richness of his vocabulary and all the passion that the sommelier conveys when he talks about Porto wines were hailed by all the participants and members of the jury.
He succeeds to Iulia SCAVO, the first woman Master of Port who presented the trophy with great emotion.
Once again, the 18th Master of Port competition carried the Wine in Moderation logo to encourage a moderate and responsible consumption of wine.
