The results of the 2016 Concours Mondial de Bruxelles have just been released. Once again, the competition has revealed critical insight into the latest trends within the world of wine, providing a snapshot of the global industry that is updated annually.

This year, the competition resumed its tour of Europe’s leading wine regions, travelling to the Bulgarian town of Plovdiv. Over 8,750 wines from 51 producer countries competed before a selection of the world’s foremost tasters. Sommeliers, buyers, importers, journalists and wine writers – in all, 320 wine tasters representing 54 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’.

To provide consumers with a reliable buying cue, three types of medals were awarded: Grand Gold, Gold and Silver. The results can be accessed via the competition’s website: http://results.concoursmondial.com/. In addition to medals, the competition also awards special prizes to wines scoring highest in their category:

Next year the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles will return to Spain, visiting Valladolid in the heart of the Castilla y León region. This is the second time Spain has hosted this travelling contest after Valencia in 2009. Over the past 10 years, the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles has become one of the largest showcases of Spanish wine diversity. This year, amongst the 9,000 samples entered in the competition, 1,700 were Spanish which puts Spain in second position, just behind France.
