The "Magistrate of Saint-Saphorin" seduced the jury unanimously. Neyroud's award-winning wines no longer have to prove their quality.
Jean-François recalls an amusing story. In 1992, his perfectionist nature obtained a 20/20 score, in the tasting of Vaud with the "Magistrat de Saint-Saphorin" wine. After the judges’ decision, he contacted a fellow winemaker to tell him the good news.
"It was quite funny because my colleague had received a score of 19.5/20 and was convinced that no-one could have done better. You could only imagine his disappointment when I told him my result," laughs Jean-François. "For forty years we are the only ones to have achieved a perfect score". Humbly, he acknowledges that such a distinction seems unreal, because 20/20 means perfection, and according to him there is no such thing as there is always room for improvement.
