Chile Takes 5 Grand Golds in 2011 Concours Mondial de Bruxelles

l-concours-bruxelles-2011The Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, considered among the world’s most important wine and spirits competitions, began in 1994 and continues to attract wines-and attention-from around the world. The latest edition, held in Luxembourg on May 6–8, 2011, gathered 7,386 wines and spirits from 49 countries, and a tasting panel of 284 tasters and 40 nationalities.

Approximately one third of the wines earned a medal, and less than 1% took home a Grand Gold. This year Chile is proud to walk away with 5 of those coveted awards, and a total of 136 medals overall. Three of the top wines were Merlot, and the other two, both full-bodied whites–a Chardonnay and a Viognier–brought further praise to the much-acclaimed cool-climate Casablanca Valley.

Chile’s Grand Gold Medals:

  • Bodegas y Viñedos de Aguirre Casilda Reserva Merlot 2010, Central Valley
  • Château Los Boldos Vieilles Vignes Merlot 2009, Cachapoal Valley
  • Luis Felipe Edwards Gran Reserva Family Selection Chardonnay 2010, Casablanca Valley
  • Emiliana Novas Viognier 2010, Casablanca Valley
  • Bodegas y Viñedos de Aguirre Orion Reserva Merlot 2010, Central Valley

  1. The international wine-show season is underway and the results of the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2010 have just been announced. Just under 7000 wines and spirits were judged this year to put that in local context the Trophy Wine Show judges about 1000 local wines and Veritas sometimes approaches nearly double that – it is not clear how many SA wines were entered here .
