Desom: Three New Magnums for the Summer!

Since the start of the summer, the Desom Estate has been selling a new range of still wines in magnums: an oak-aged Chardonnay, a partly oak-aged Pinot Gris and a Pinot Noir rosé.

As there’s currently a trend for large format bottles, more and more estates are now selling one or two of their wines in magnums (1.5 litres: the equivalent of two standard bottles). The latest estate to do so is certainly not doing this by halves. For the summer, Marc Desom has decided to release three wines at the same time: a 2018 Remich Fels Chardonnay aged in 400-litre French oak barrels for eight months, a 2018 Wellenstein Foulschette Pinot Gris partly aged in French oak barrels for eight months and a Bech-Kleinmacher Enschberg Pinot Noir rosé, traditionally produced in stainless steel tanks.

“For the first time we’re bottling our still wines in magnums for a limited series!” Marc Desom explains (the numbers remain a secret). “We’re doing this as we wanted to highlight the exceptional quality of these 2018 wines.” They are all classics from the Domaine Desom range, the Remich estate’s high-end range. Available to the general public, in boxes of three as well, they are, however, also a response to demand from restaurants. “Magnums of rosé are very popular,” the winemaker confirms.

They join the vintage crémant (currently a 2015), which until now has been the only wine to be released in this size. And by the end of the year, once it is ready, there will be another wine to swell the ranks: a red Pinot Noir. Then the range will be complete!
