The 20th Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, a wine competition, was launched here on Friday, featuring 8,060 kinds of wines from 58 producer countries.

 "The goal of the competition is to promote wines and these international tasters are all professional, and they will try to find the best wine of the world," contest director Thomas Costenoble told Xinhua.

According to Costenoble, they will attribute Great Gold Medals, Gold Medals or Silver Medals to those best wines of the world.

The Concours Mondial de Bruxelles returns to its native city to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

Since 2006, the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles has been on tour and has visited Europe's prime producer regions, travelling from Lisbon to Maastricht, Bordeaux, Valencia, Palermo, Luxembourg, Guimaraes and Bratislava.

"Celebrating our 20th anniversary in Brussels is a return to our roots. It's marvellous, Brussels has so much to offer," said the contest's founder Louis Havaux in a news bulletin.

According to it, for the competition in 2014, France remains the leading participating country with 2,428 entries, followed by Spain (1,615 entries), Italy (1,163), Portugal (965) and Chile, which confirms its rank as the Southern Hemisphere's premier participant with 365 entries.
