Description

This cuvée Homelt is made from Rivaner (Müller-Thurgau). It is rich, juicy and has mild acidity with a lot of fruitiness. A wine that is best drunk now. Drink it as an aperitif or with a salad with goat cheese and honey, sauerkraut with sausage or with fresh fish dishes such as swordfish carpaccio or sashimi.

Started at his family's winery, Domaine Abi Duhr & fils, he has since grown into one of the pioneers of Luxembourg viticulture with his own "Château Pauqué". He is one of the forerunners in the making of terroir wines, where many other winegrowers mainly want to put the grape in the spotlight. Abi Duhr, however, believes that the next step had to be taken, towards wines with a clear terroir expression and with more depth and complexity. From that idea, he created the "Clos du Paradis" in 1988, a wine where the vineyard was paramount and not so much the grape. It was the culmination of a development of a number of years, with many innovations in winemaking, such as the use of oak wood (1982) and the application of apple milk and sour fermentation (1987). Revolutionary innovations for Luxembourg at the time. After a recent purchase of one hectare of beautiful vineyards in the village of Schengen, Château Pauqué has a total of 4.5 hectares of vineyards. Almost all sticks are planted on steep slopes along the Moselle, essential for the best quality. The vineyards are planted with pinot blanc, elbling, auxerrois, riesling, pinot gris and chardonnay. The vineyards can be found in the lieux-dits Mertert Herrenberg, Grevenmacher Fels and Paradäis, Wormeldange Nussbaum, Ehnen Bromelt, Stadtbredimus Dieffert and –Fels and Schengen Fels, the only vineyard in the Luxembourg part of the Moselle on red sandstone. In his work, Abi Duhr was strongly influenced by the French, and in particular the Burgundian way of winemaking.
