In May 2014, the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles celebrated its 20th anniversary – twenty years of change, discovery and a relentless quest to seek out the world’s finest quality wines. The Concours Mondial de Bruxelles’ primary ambition is to provide consumers with a guarantee: that it will single out wines of irreproachable quality offering a truly pleasurable drinking experience, wines from across the globe and the price points.
Twenty years experience have enabled the competition to become a benchmark amongst international wine contests. Belgium can be proud to organise a unique event that is known and recognised by the wine industry and consumers world wide.
The Concours Mondial de Bruxelles has garnered its reputation by rigorously selecting renowned judges of proven expertise. The organisers provide tasting conditions of the highest standard and have invested unsparingly in post-event checks of award-winning wines. Additional analyses are thus carried out regularly on wines that display the precious Concours Mondial de Bruxelles bottle sticker. These checks are conducted so that consumers can rest assured that the ‘Concours Mondial’ seal is a reliable measure of quality.
The Italian seaside resort of Jesolo hosted the 22nd Concours Mondial de Bruxelles from May 1 to 3, 2015. Approximately 50 countries will be entering over 8,000 wines that will be judged by 300 professional wine tasters from across the globe.
As has become customary over the last decade or so, the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles is travelling to one of Europe’s major wine regions and this year, the honour falls to Italy. The scene of this year’s event is Veneto, one of the country’s most dynamic wine regions. The competition will turn the spotlight on its 21 appellations, including Valpolicella and Soave, as well as the famous, and currently very popular, Prosecco which gained the new DOCG Prosecco Superiore Congliano Valdobbiadene label in 2010.
The event’s success derives from factors such as its impartiality, its professionalism and its exacting standards, all of which have secured the competition’s global reputation. A number of checks are carried out before, during and even after judging to ensure the relevance and reliability of the medals awarded. Twenty years of experience have made the competition one of the foremost events of its kind worldwide. It delivers an unparalleled showcase of the latest trends in grape varieties, controlled appellations and vintages. Its success mirrors the loyalty of the wine producers from around the world who, year after year, place their trust in this world wine tasting championship.
