I had the honour and pleasure of being on the jury panel of one of the most professionally organized wine & spirits competitions in the world-Concours Mondial de Bruxelles (CMB) which was held in Brussels last year. As I prepare to be at the 22nd CMB to take place at Jesolo, Italy from May 1 to 3, 2015 , here is a sneak peek into this year’s event.

Memories from CMB 2014

The Italian seaside resort of Jesolo, the beautiful city in Veneto region is hosting 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. Veneto is 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 that 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.

The results of the Concours Mondial will be released on May 15 on the Belgian pavilion at Expo 2015 in Milan.

And here is the report from my last year’s visit to CMB.
