The first of the “noble” Luxembourgish varieties, this Burgundian variety produces a wine of convincing mellowness with its characteristic fineness and fruity bouquet. This can be served as an aperitif at receptions or be drunk aside a warm duck-liver salad or a dish of stir-fried mushrooms or maybe a piece of ripe goats cheese – just to give a few examples.
Caves Krier Frères offers this wine in the following varieties:
· 37,5 cl Grand Premier Cru
· 75 cl M.N., Premier Cru & Grand Premier Cru
· 100 cl M.N. (cautionné)
AOC MOSELLE LUXEMBOURGEOISE:
Since 1935, the Luxembourg government has been controlling the quality of the wines produced in our Moselle Valley. First the wine producer has to make a formal request for each barrel he wishes to introduce. Then, after a lab analysis, the wine is tasted by a commission of 12 blindfolded members who evaluate the wine on a scale of 20 points.
· 12,0 – 13,9 points : AOC Marque Nationale
· 14,0 – 15,9 points : AOC MN – Vin Classé
· 16,0 – 17,9 points : AOC MN – Premier Cru
· 18,0 – 20,0 points : AOC MN – Grand Premier Cru
The official back label on the wine bottles is then a guarantee of the governmental quality control.
Auxerrois may obtain all these classifications.
