Every year, the Hachette Wine Guide presents its ranking of wines selected in France, Switzerland and the Grand Duchy. And the result of national winemakers doesn't need to shy away -four cuvées won over the jury and had the honour of being awarded with the "coup de cœur" distinction.
And the winners are ...
The four coups de cœurs are awarded to:
- Cep d’or Wine Estate (Hëttermillen); Crémant de Luxembourg, Cuvée 36, 2013 vintage
- Krier-Bisenis Wine Estate (Bech-Kleinmacher) , Pinot gris 2016, Wellenstein Foulschette
- Schumacher-Knepper Wine Estate (Wintrange), Pinot gris 2016, Wintrange Felsberg, Grand premier cru
- Paul Legill Cellars (Schengen), Auxerrois 2016, old vines, Coteaux de Schengen, Grand premier cru
The wines that have been awarded three stars are:
- Bastian Wine Estate (Remich, Pinot gris);
- Clos des Rochers Wine Estate (Grevenmacher, Pinot gris);
- St. Remy-Desom Cellars (Remich, Pinot gris);
- Vinsmoselle Wine Estates (Stadtbredimus, Riesling);
- Vinsmoselle Wine Estates (Remerschen, Pinot gris);
- Vinsmoselle Wine Estates (Remerschen, Crémant de Luxembourg);
- Paul Legill Wine Estates (Schengen, Crémant de Luxembourg);
- Cep d’or Wine Estate (Hëttermillen, Crémant de Luxembourg);
- Krier-Bisenis Wine Estate (Bech-Kleinmacher, Pinot gris);
- Schumacher-Knepper Wine Estate (Wintrange, Pinot gris);
Among wines and sparkling wines, 9 have been awarded two stars, and six have been awarded one star.
Being listed in the Hachette Wine Guide is somewhat like winning an Oscar. Indeed, the French guide is THE reference for experts and amateurs of wines and sparkling wines. So it's obvious that the 2018 edition will spread further the fame enjoyed by Luxembourgish wines among winelovers everywhere.
