Domaine & Tradition Mathis Bastian Riesling Wellenstein Foulschette 2013

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought two bottles of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/78138. They were tall thin bottles similar to those used in Alsace.There has been winemaking in what is now the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg since Roman times and it now consists of 1200 hectares along the south-east border with Germany in the Moselle valley.Grape varieties and wine styles are very similar to those on the German side of the river or in nearby Alsace.There is only one AOC in the country,created in 1935. the Moselle Luxembourgeoise. Winemaking is dominated by the Vinsmoselle co-operative which accounts for 2/3rds of the country's entire production althogh my bottle comes from the small independent Mathis Bastian estate.I started my bottle last night with my supper of quiche loraine and I did enjoy it.It is a dry wine which is fairly acidic with citrus fruit but it is also fairly delicate with hints of elderflower.It was a good match for the quiche
