Bohemia Sekt prestige brut successful at prestigious Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 

Starý Plzenec, 17 September 2020 – Bohemia Sekt won eight medals for its sparkling and still wines at the 27th annual Concours Mondial de Bruxelles international wine competition. Grand Gold Medals for exceptional wines were awarded to Bohemia Sekt Prestige brut, a superior sparkling wine produced using the traditional method of bottle ageing, and Welschriesling from the Solitér series of wines produced by Vinařství Pavlov.

This year’s competition included 8,500 wines, which were judged by 250 sommeliers from 46 countries over a three-day period. Among the samples competing were a record 370 wines from the Czech Republic. In this stiff competition, Bohemia Sekt won two Grand Gold Medals, one Gold Medal and five Silver Medals.

“Bohemia Sekt Prestige brut is the country’s top-selling sparkling wine produced using the traditional method, and it has been racking up successes in wine competitions for many years now. The cuvée of the sparkling wine was created using a unique blend of quality varietal grapes from selected vineyards in South Moravia. Rheinriesling imparts a rich nose and zesty acidity, while Pinot Blanc provides extractive tones on the palate and Welschriesling adds freshness,” explains Bohemia Sekt Marketing Director Martin Fousek. Bohemia Sekt Prestige Chardonnay and Bohemia Sekt Prestige 36 also performed well with the expert jury, each winning a Silver Medal.

Bohemia Sekt also scored well in the still wine category. A Grand Gold Medal was awarded to the Welschriesling, Special Selection of Grapes, 2017 from the Solitér series of wines produced by Vinařství Pavlov. This wine is distinctive for its beautiful golden colour. Ripe grapes partly affected by noble rot are expressed on the palate, reflecting notes of dried flowers, dried apples and raisins with an undertone of honeycomb. The same winery also received a Gold Medal for its Chardonnay, Late Harvest, 2017. The proud recipients of Silver Medals from the prestigious international competition are Habánské Sklepy for its Rheinriesling, Late Harvest, 2018, and Víno Mikulov for its Rheinriesling, Late Harvest, 2018 and Pinot Blanc, Late Harvest, 2018, which are also both members of the Bohemia Sekt group.

About the competition:
The Concours Mondial de Bruxelles international wine competition was first held in 1994. In the early years the judging was held in Brussels, but in 2006 the competition started to travel to major wine regions throughout Europe. Venues have included Plovdiv (Bulgaria), Jesolo (Italy), Guimarães (Portugal), Luxembourg (Luxembourg), Bratislava (Slovakia), and Aigle (Switzerland). Next year the competition will be held in the city of Yinchuan in China’s Ningxia region. The Czech Republic has been participating in the competition since the very first event in 1994.

This year the Czech Republic picked up 112 awards, thus securing fifth place behind the European wine powerhouses of France, Spain, Italy and Portugal. This also marked the very first time the country hosted this festival of wine.
