The prestigious wine competition Concours Mondial de Bruxelles has been running for more than 20 years, and it has played an important role in identifying some of the best wines in the world. It remains committed to identifying “wines of irreproachable quality offering a truly pleasurable drinking experience.” Wines are evaluated by a panel of international judges, all of them trade professionals such as sommeliers, procurement managers, journalists, oenologists and wine critics from across the globe.
