Creation Chardonnay Making Waves in Mauritius

When asked for his favourite Creation wine, Jorald Julie, Assistant Corporate Sommelier at the Constance Hotel group, picked the Creation Chardonnay, saying it is the perfect match for Mauritian seafood dishes.

With a hand-picked collection of more than 25,000 bottles, the wine cellar at Constance Prince Maurice in Mauritius is truly impressive. Thus the judges at the 2015 World’s Best Wine Lists found its wine list to be “full of classic European choices” backed by an “excellent selection from the New World, and particularly South Africa.”

Sommelier Jorald Julie was selected as Best Sommelier Mauritius in 2012 and was also chosen to represent Mauritius at the World’s Best Sommelier Competition in 2016. What’s more, Constance Prince Maurice recently won the title for Best Hotel Wine List Middle East and Africa for the second time.

Always fascinated by what makes a good sommelier tick, we asked the talented Jorald some pertinent questions.
