Vintage Crémant

The VINTAGE Crémant in Brut is the top of the range for the connoisseurs! This is a very elegant Crémant, fine and with a distinguished body. It is only made from grapes from a certain predefined year, and is thus limited in quantity which is what takes the vintage cuvee apart from the others. Additionally, the vintage cuvee rests between two to three years on yeast, which is much longer than the usual nine months. This longer ageing on yeast (the yeast which started the second fermentation) is very important in order to obtain our top Crémant. Showing high-class, various vintages from our VINTAGE range, have received gold as well as silver and bronze medals at numerous Crémant competitions in France. The Vintage cuvee 2005 won a gold medal an became “World Champion” at the competition in Ljubljana, Slovenia in may 2007. The VINTAGE Crémant is available in bottles of 75 cl.

Pinot Noir

Originating from Burgundy, this grape variety has given birth to a wine that is becoming increasingly popular. It is the first red grape variety planted on our hillsides and since its first appearance in the mid 1980’s it continues to convince more and more consumers. This wine can easily accompany a multitude of dishes and it should be found in any well-stocked wine cellar.


AOP MOSELLE LUXEMBOURGEOISE:

Since 1935, the Luxembourg government has been controlling the quality of the wines produced in our Moselle Valley. First the wine producer has to make a formal request for each barrel he wishes to introduce. Then, after a lab analysis, the wine is tasted by a commission of 12 blindfolded members who evaluate the wine on a scale of 20 points.

· 12,0 – 13,9 points: AOP Marque Nationale
· 14,0 – 15,9 points: AOP MN – Vin Classé
· 16,0 – 17,9 points: AOP MN – Premier Cru
· 18,0 – 20,0 points: AOP MN – Grand Premier Cru

The official back label on the wine bottles is a guarantee of the governmental quality control.

Pinot Noir does not have the right to any classifications higher than the AOP Marque Nationale.

Elbling

Since the grapes of the Elbling variety are partly pink in colour, this wine can also be turned into wine like a rosé. The grapes simply have to be sorted by selecting the darkest grapes for maceration (fermentation leaving on the skin of the grapes). The Elbling Rosé is a light wine and pleasant to drink since it does not contain the same amount of acidity as its white brother.

This wine is offered in a transparent Bordeaux bottle of 75 cl.

Company details

HISTORY
For the last four generations Caves Krier Frères has above all been a family story to be told. Jean Krier (1847-1917) was a wine-grower, a wine merchant, a cooper and a carter all in one. With two of his sons, François and Jean Pierre, he founded the first company in Bech-Kleinmacher which drew up its first balance sheet in 1914.

Then, in 1922, the company settled down in upper Remich close to the railway station. This strategic location favoured the export of wine in barrels towards Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark via the port of Antwerp, and even as far as the Baltic countries. It was at this moment, due to the rapid developments, that a third brother named August, decided to acquire shares in the company as well.

The situation at the time led the company managers to abandon the wine farming in order to devote themselves entirely to the marketing of wines produced by other vine-growers.

In 1929, a son, Jean Krier, was born to François Krier (1888-1960), father of the current owners. Eager to ensure an optimal production both in quantity and above all in quality, the procurement strategy was completely changed in the 1960’s. The purchase of bottled wines was replaced by the creation of a private wine-farming domain. In order to cover their entire needs, the own grown production was then supplemented with grapes purchased from a number of other independent vine growers. Jean and Paul Krier, who took over the company from their respective fathers François and Auguste, continued with the same zeal and know-how as their ancestors, and guided the fate of the business up until 1989 when two of Jean’s three children, Michèle and Marc entered into a partnership and brought the company forward into the third millennium.
