Portugal obtained 12 Grand Gold medals in the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2015
The 20th edition of the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles distinguished the Wines of Portugal with 331 medals: 12 Grand Gold medals, 107 Gold medals and 212 Silver medals. Portugal achieved a positive result and obtained more Grand Gold medals than Spain (10), Chile (9) and South Africa. In addition to medals, the competition also awards special prizes to wines scoring highest in their category. In this away, the wine Quinta da Sequeira Grande Reserva Tinto 2009 (Douro) was considered the best Portuguese wine and the port wine Kopke Porto 1941 (Port Harvest) was recognized as one of the 2015 Revelations. This year, the competition resumed its tour of Europe’s leading wine regions, travelling to the Italian seaside resort of Jesolo on May 1, 2 and 3. Over 8,000 wines from 45 producer countries competed before a selection of the world’s foremost tasters. Sommeliers, buyers, importers, journalists and wine writers – in all, 299 wine tasters representing 49 nationalities gathered for 3 days to judge entries. The diverse range, both of entries and backgrounds of the tasters themselves, is one of the archetypal features of a competition that in just a few years has emerged as a world wine ‘tasting championship’.
