Discovering the wine region of Luxembourg

Luxembourg (officially the 'Grand Duchy of Luxembourg') is a landlocked nation at the junction of Belgium, Germany and France. It is a small country in comparison to its neighbors, extending just 80km (50 miles) North to South and 50km (30 miles) west to east, it covers just over 2,500 square kilometers (960sq miles). Only 1 percent of this is given over to viticulture. Located in the north of Western Europe, this is one of the world's cooler wine regions.

In the north of the country, the rolling Ardennes hills and forests dominate the topography. Forest accounts for a third of the land in the country and the north is sparsely populated. The vast majority of Luxembourg’s 620,000 people live in the southern half of the country. Wine production in Luxembourg has been in gentle decline since the late 1990s, with annual production currently sitting around 80,000 hectoliters (8 million liters or 2.

1 million US gallons). Winemaking is centered on the southeastern portion of Luxembourg where the Mosel river (known as the Moselle) forms the national border with Germany. The Luxembourg Moselle - a 40km (25 mile) stretch of the riverbank - is not as steep as the German Mosel and has fewer south-orientated vineyards.

Discover the grape variety: Pinot gris

Pinot Gris is a grey grape variety mutated from Pinot Noir. It has its origins in Burgundy, where it is called pinot-beurot in reference to the colour of the grey robes worn by the monks of the region. Established in Alsace since the 17th century, pinot gris was called tokay until 2007. It is made up of bunches of small berries that vary in colour from pink to blue-grey. It is particularly well suited to the continental climate because it is resistant to the cold in winter and to spring frosts. This variety also likes dry limestone soils with plenty of sunshine in the summer. Pinot Gris is well suited to late harvesting or to the selection of noble grapes, depending on the year and the concentration of sugars in the berries. Pinot Gris wines are distinguished by their aromatic complexity of white fruits, mushrooms, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, etc., and their great finesse. In the Loire Valley, pinot gris is used in the Coteaux-d'Ancenis appellations. It gives dry or sweet wines with pear and peach aromas.

Andrew Jefford: ‘The gifts of Bacchus hold our gaze like a procession’

Do growers make wine – or do markets? Growers, of course. Yet markets define the scope of the grower’s creative efforts by what they reward or sanction. When markets are neglectful and unresponsive, there’s little the grower can do but conform. It’s a problem the world over. Here’s an example. The river Moselle/Mosel rises to the wet west of the Vosges mountains, then curves in a long green arc heading north through Epinal, Metz and (along the left bank) Luxembourg’s Grand Duchy, turning east at ...
