Le Concours Mondial
Our red wine Noémie 2016 was awarded the ‘Grand Gold Medal’ at Le Concours Mondial 2020 in Brno, Czech Republic, and also received the aspired award ‘The International Revelation’. This implies that out of all participating international red wines, Noémie 2016 was chosen as the ultimate red wine.
Additionally, Le Secret de Noémie 2015 received the ‘Grand Gold Medal’ for red wine at Le Concours Mondial 2020.
LE CONCOURS MONDIAL
Le Concours Mondial de Bruxelles is an international competition where over 8,000 wines are entered by producers to be tasted and evaluated by a panel of experts. Our seasoned judges from around the world taste entries with a single-minded ambition, and that is to select wines of irreproachable quality with no bias stemming from the label or an appellation’s prestige.
The competition is one of the most significant international events of its kind. In 2015, 320 international judges spanning 50 nationalities took part, a diversity that contributes to the uniqueness of the event and greater objectivity of results.

All flights of wine tasted by the international panel of judges are obviously served blind. The competition’s organizers ensure that the samples remain entirely anonymous both as regards the label and the shape of the bottle. The only statement revealed to the judges is the vintage.
Reputable judges, internationally renowned for their ability to assess wine are rigorously chosen for the competition. They are international buyers and shippers, engineers and oenologists, journalists, specialist wine writers and critics, researchers, and representatives from industry organizations. They have the responsibility to award medals to the best competing products. The wines are judged by over 60 panels comprising between five and six judges. Three of these panels are set aside for dessert wines (Port, Sherry, and Madeira for example) with a further five panels dedicated to rosé wines.
