What the judges said…

Constance Prince Maurice – Proud winner of the impressive title:
Best Hotel Wine List in Africa & The Middle East Award

Judges at the Word Best Wine List 2015 found Constance Le Prince Maurice's wine list to be “full of classic European choices” with an “excellent selection from the New World, and particularly South Africa.”

Senior judge, Alder Yarrow said, “There’s some depth in areas that you wouldn’t expect from a hotel of this kind, older vintages of Trimbach Clos Ste-Hune, for example, seven different Jura wines, 15 vintages of Beaucastel.”

Francis Percival: “It’s Brooklyn goes to Mauritius,” - “There are lots of wines I’d like to drink.”

Constance Lemuria Seychelles – Proud winner of the notable title:
Best Champagne & Sparkling Wine List in Africa & The Middle East

Judges described Constance Lemuria’s list as a “list that seems to have everything. It’s very well organized and clearly presented—and the selection is top notch.”

The judges were impressed by what chairman of the judges, Neil Beckett, described as its “willingness to add quirkier choices, such as Eben Sadie by the glass, and not just the usual suspects.”

Senior judge Ch’ng Poh Tiong said, “it has excellent depth and breadth, with the big names (eight vintages of Salon!) balanced with growers.”

“It’s impressive that they have any growers at all in their location—and the depth of vintages of fine Champagne luxury brands is remarkable.”
