At Le Prince Maurice we are very proud of our award-winning assistant head sommelier Jorald Julie.
This year Mauritius-born Jorald won the coveted title of Best Sommelier of Mauritius by the Association of Sommeliers of Mauritius following a live final at Château Mon Désir at the Maritim Hotel.
No stranger to winning, Jorald had already won an award back in March at this year’s famous Bernard Loiseau Culinary Festival.
Jorald was selected as winner against some of the best Mauritian sommeliers in a competition to choose the best wines to match a dinner cooked by the guest European Michelin-starred chefs.
Jorald’s tips for wines to try in 2013
- Champagne Delamotte Brut – fine bubbles with nice complexity
- Springfield Estate Life from stone Sauvignon Blanc from the Robertson Region South Africa – exotic fruit flavours and marvellous freshness for summertime.
- Clos Henri Pinot Noir from the Malborough Region New Zealand – Red fruit and spicy note, fresh and elegant in mouth
