For several years the national competition for best sommelier for French wines has been held in Korea, organised by Sopexa with the support of Min Wo Lee, who represents DBR (Lafite) wines in this country.
Through a Lafite Rothschild Special Prize, this competition honours the best Korean sommelier after several complex tests: written exams on French winemaking regions, sensory analysis, service and aeration of wines, blind tastings including the wines of Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) . . .
The 14th edition involved 4100 professionals from the sector, including 146 sommeliers and 50 consultants who took part in the competition, and it received wide press coverage.
The final took place on 7 July at the Millennium Seoul Hilton Hotel and it was Mrs YOO JISOON who was the winner of the Lafite Rothschild Special Prize
The DBR (Lafite) teams congratulate her on this achievement!
