Domaine Henri Ruppert

Hammer 2018


Smoky Cherry & Spice

Here's a full-bodied red from the Benelux region! Above-average temperatures in 2018 allowed winemaker Henri Ruppert to produce a wine with grape varieties rarely seen in Luxembourg. The result is a powerful blend with chewy tannins, supple red fruit flavors, and a touch of acidity. An age-worthy bottle hinting at the future of winemaking in the region.

Overlooking the borders of Germany, France, and Luxembourg, Henri Ruppert makes wines that can rival the greats. From a passion for Riesling to a talent for Pinot Noir, Schengen is not just the entrance to Europe but to modern winemaking in Luxembourg. Learn more
