Lorraine's gastronomy

Wines of Lorraine

The renewal of Lorraine’s vineyards
For the quality of their taste as well as their diversity, the wines* of Lorraine are worth the trip. These local products from Moselle, Toul and Meuse are made from different varietals and with know-how passed down over the centuries. Our human-sized vineyards are booming, with more hectares of vine stock each year, while attracting younger winegrowers.

AOC Côtes de Toul

Covering 8 villages, the AOC Côtes de Toul designation is worth the trip. Toul winegrowers produce grey, red and white wines*, including the famous Gris de Toul rosé wine with a crystal-clear colour. The vineyard has great advantages, transforming the 3 main varietals in ways you’ve never before tasted: Gamay, Pinot Noir and Auxerrois.

Wine and food pairings with Christophe Dufossé

MICHELIN-STARRED CHEF OF LE MAGASIN AUX VIVRES

He’s the Michelin-starred chef of the prestigious restaurant at the four-star La Citadelle hotel in Metz. But not only that. Christophe Dufossé is also the head of the Sichuan Jinjiang Hotel in Chengdu, China. This bold top chef, mad about cuisine and flavours, is more than up to the challenge.

AOC Côtes de Toul

“For me, these are enjoyable, fruity, light and gentle wines that please the taste buds. I like the bistro atmosphere that they bring to mind and I suggest them with trout, coq au vin or my famous revamped quiche Lorraine.”

PGI Côtes de Meuse

“PGI Côtes de Meuse is a bit more in the background, due to its limited quantity and lesser-known reputation. I recommend staying in touch with its roots and trying it with local specialties, game or simmered dishes.”

AOC Vins de Moselle

“I like the very feminine wines of Domaine des Béliers in Ancy-sur-Moselle. Delicate and gentle, they inspire a pairing with red berries in the summer or with high-quality, strong chocolate for a bold balance.”
