Hervé Amann, Wine Section Manager at Pitz-Schweitzer (33, ZAER op der Hei in Hosingen)

Created in 1982 by Aby Duhr, this was the first wine in Luxembourg to use oak barrels which were then not authorised by legislation. Classified as a “Table Wine”, it was hugely popular, inspiring other winemakers and the legislation evolved. Despite all this, it is still not PDO classified. This wine (80 % Pinot Blanc, 20 % Auxerrois) has been aged for eight to ten months, a third in new barrels and two thirds in barrels aged two to four years. The nose is of apples, pears, citrus fruits and flowers (acacia, lime-blossom, etc.), with woody and vanilla notes. On the palate, the aromas on the nose reappear with gorgeous minerality. Fresh, well-rounded and powerful with a long finish… you’d think you were in Burgundy!

Price: 14.90 Euros at Pitz-Schweitzer.
