Originating from Burgundy, this grape variety has given birth to a wine that is becoming increasingly popular. It is the first red grape variety planted on our hillsides and since its first appearance in the mid 1980’s it continues to convince more and more consumers. This wine can easily accompany a multitude of dishes and it should be found in any well-stocked wine cellar.
THE ROSE VARIETY:
As we have produced the Pinot Noir since the beginning of our Domain history, we are renowned for our know-how concerning the processing of rosé wine. The grapes harvested for the production of a rosé wine are not pressed straight away. They are crushed and destemmed, after which they are put in a special tank in order to begin the fermentation process (also called maceration). During the maceration the skin of the grapes colours the juice. After a relatively short time, this process is interrupted in order to continue the wine-making in the same way as with the white wines. This rosé is a very light and pleasant wine to drink with a fragrance of red fruits. The rosé is served at 8-10 degrees like white wines. It cannot be kept for a long time and is therefore best to be drunk within two years.
This wine is offered in a transparent Bordeaux bottle of 75 cl.
AOP 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: AOP Marque Nationale
· 14,0 – 15,9 points: AOP MN – Vin Classé
· 16,0 – 17,9 points: AOP MN – Premier Cru
· 18,0 – 20,0 points: AOP MN – Grand Premier Cru
The official back label on the wine bottles is a guarantee of the governmental quality control.
Pinot Noir does not have the right to any classifications higher than the AOP Marque Nationale.
