The Crémant de Luxembourg – Cuvée Melusiner is a significant achievement by the Domaine L&R Kox. At least seven years on the lees for this cuvée which effortlessly balances richness and freshness, power and finesse. A perfectly mastered fine bubble and a remarkable length in the mouth complete this great sparkling wine.
This cuvée is a tribute to the legend of the beautiful Melusina, the wife of the Count of Luxembourg Siegfried. When Melusina accepted to marry the Count, she insisted on one condition: she needed to be alone every Saturday. The Count swore on his honour that he would meet this demand. However, driven by jealousy, he ends up spying on her and discovers that in these days his wife’s feet were replaced by a fish tail. Melusina, who discovered the betrayal, disappeared into the waters of the Alzette where she reappears every seven years. Just like Melusina this crémant « reappears » only after seven years of bottle ageing – a cuvée at the top of the hierarchy of Crémants de Luxembourg!

Domaine L&R Kox
The first traces of the Kox family's ancestors date back to 1680 with the immigration of the Coex, Dutch people from Bergeijk. The family name was subsequently changed from Coex, to Cox, and finally to Kox. Historical records registered the Kox family as owners of vineyards in 1848. In 1908, Joseph Kox-Tabouring, the grandfather of the current owner, bought plot 317 at a place called "Groussebongert". In 1909 he built the Kox estate (winery and stables). In 1964, François Kox-Risch, the father of the current owner, bought the estate. He was the first member of the family to make winegrowing his profession. In 1977, Laurent Kox, the son of François took over the winery. The first Crémant de Luxembourg produced by the Kox winery was in 1991. Since then, Laurent Kox has specialized in high quality sparkling wines. In July 2014 the daughter of Corinne Kox installed two amphora-shaped clay vessels produced in Georgia (kvevris) and vinified the first orange wines made in Luxembourg.
