Concours General Agricole Paris Wine Competition

Concours General Agricole Paris

The Concours General Agricole Paris (CGA) is a French agricultural show funded and organized by the French ministries of agriculture, food, fisheries and rural affairs. It is co-owned by the Centre Nationale d'Expositions, Paris’ national exhibition centre, where it is hosted annually.

The CGA is widely respected for its impartiality and rigorous judging processes. This is aided by its long-running success and the fact that it is government controlled. The event first took shape in 1860 as a generalist agriculture show for the French nation. It grew steadily until 1964, surviving wars and other national crises, until it was divided into three separate competitions: one for livestock, one for produce and one for wines. The latter, Le Concours des Vins, has now grown to a substantial size.

More than 15,000 wine samples are submitted to the CGA's judging panels each year by roughly 4000 of France’s winemakers. The wines are examined and rated by almost 3000 experts (one of the largest tasting panels of any wine competition in the world), who award upwards of 3500 medals each year. Wines from around France's mainland are assessed, and a modest contingent from Corsica is also present each year. The majority of wines come from the likes of Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne and Languedoc-Roussillon, but less-famous regions are also well represented. However the names of France’s most famous wine producers, who rarely need affirmation from public wine shows, are conspicuously absent from the CGA's judging tables.

To keep up with modern technology and consumer habits, the CGA’s organizers have introduced a web-based sales channel for the promotion and online sales of its medal-winning products. For more information about this and the competition, visit www.cga-paris.com.
