With the breadth of the beverage world represented, the 2021 TEXSOM International Wine Awards -hosted at Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas on April 25-27th- was one of the most dynamic in recent history. The competition garnered 2,390 entries, representing 29 countries and 16 U.S. states. Entries were blind-tasted and judged by over 44 internationally renowned tastemakers, including Master Sommeliers, Masters of Wine, and other category experts. Of the entries judged, the judges awarded 1,814 medals: 51 Judges’ Selection medals, 89 Platinum medals, 189 Gold medals, 731 Silver medals, and 805 Bronze medals.
The Journal of Wine Economics recently published a paper that mentioned the TEXSOM International Wine Awards, highlighting the competition’s ability to identify quality wines and offer judging consistency year after year. In the wine industry, TEXSOM is also regarded as one of the world’s most selective competitions, owing to the judges’ level of experience and global perspective.
Here are the results for the wines that Chateau de Pommard submitted:

TEXSOM was founded in 2005 as the Texas Sommelier Conference by Master Sommeliers (then Advanced Sommeliers) James Tidwell, and Drew Hendricks. Their goal was to help promote professional wine service standards, outline paths for further beverage education and certification and raise public awareness about professional standards for sommeliers. What began as an opportunity for Texas sommeliers to learn and train evolved into an international event for beverage professionals from all tiers of the industry to network and grow.
