The Luxembourg vineyard extends for 42 km on the slopes of Moselle river. Limestone soils to the north and clay to the south of the appellation. A terroir of exception, conducive to the production of great sparkling wines and still wines fresh and fruity. The historic building of the Bernard Massard Caves is located in Grevenmacher, in the northern part of the Luxembourg vineyards.
Vinification and maturation
Classic "méthode traditionnelle": the first fermentation transforms the fresh grape must into a still wine. After the blending of different wines into a "cuvée", a second fermentation takes place in the original bottle. The carbon dioxide resulting from this fermentation makes the wine sparkling. All modern installations such as temperature control of fermentation, stainless steel tanks, automatic "remuage" and disgorgement are being used by the company’s oenologists. A “liqueur de dosage” (wine and sugar) is added to the disgorged sparkling wine before corking and labeling of the bottle. This process takes a minimum of one year.
This vintage has beautiful and abundant bubbles of great finesse, forming a persistent bead. The lively and lemony attack introduces a mouth with a beautiful structure. The finish is sweet for a wine with a nice balance.
As an aperitif, a nice party wine.
