Award winning wines in the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2014

Last Monday 12th May the award-winning wines were published from what is possibly the most important wine event in the world: The Concours Mondial de Bruxelles.

On the occasion of the commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the event, the Concours Mondial 2014 took place in its hometown, after eight years of touring the world.

A total of 8060 wines from 58 different countries were tasted, including 1615 Spanish wines, which maintains Spain as the second most featured country, after France.

And the awards won by our wines were, as has become normal, more than satisfactory: 13 Grand Gold Medals, 150 Gold Medals and 336 Silver Medals, which puts Spain in second place overall, once again after France.

On this great occasion, we can’t help but mention some of our favourite wines that won awards in the competition:

Carmelo Rodero Reserva 2010. A Gold Medal for this blend dominated by the tinta fina variety with touches of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. A wine that exceeds vintage after vintage. Balanced, subtle and round.

Luis Cañas Crianza 2010. We travel from the Ribera del Duero to the Rioja to pay tribute to this red wine by Bodega Luis Cañas, which on the other hand, is now quite used to winning prizes in this type of competition. A tasty and appetizing wine that returns from Brussels with a Gold Medal around its neck. One of the best value Rioja wines.

Coto de Hayas Garnacha Centenaria 2012. And talking about “intelligent buys”, how could we miss this impressive Grenache from the DO Campo de Borja? A Gold Medal for this deep wine rich in nuances. Intensity and ripeness are balanced with a refreshing mineral touch, resulting in an amazing wine.
