Alsace

The vineyard of Alsace covers 15 000 ha spread over the departments of Bas-Rhin and Haut-Rhin. Backed by the Vosges, overflowing on the plain of Alsace, it enjoys a singular micro-climate, which ensures the summers ends particularly lenient and conducive to a slow and full maturity of the grapes. The region offers some of the greatest sweet wines of France (Late Harvest and Selection of Noble Grains). White wines represent 92% of the production and most of it is made up of wines from a single grape variety whose name appears on the label. The Alsatian grape variety is one of the most original in France. In addition to pinot blanc, muscat, sylvaner, pinot gris or pinot noir (unique red varietal), the region has borrowed from Central Europe two varieties which are the origin of the most famous wines of Alsace: Riesling and gewurztraminer (40% of the areas planted together), the first all in righteousness and minerality, the second in roundness and aromas. Alsace has also had the good idea to prioritize its best vineyards that enjoy the status of Grand Cru.

  • Leon Beyer Gewurztraminer 2015

    Jancis Robinson "Mango, passion fruit, rose petals – all the extravagance of the variety, but not in an oppressive way. In fact the dry finish and reasonably decent acidity is a refreshing change from the flabby norm. Ageing well, and should...
