The AOC Alsace traditionally distinguishes its wines by the name of the grape, l’ AOC Grand Cru allows the name of the parcel (Steinklotz, Altenberg de Bergbieten, Altenberg de Wolxheim, etc) to be emphasised.

This principle is ancient. Just see for yourselves : In Marlenheim, in 613, the future king Dagobert gave some vines in the Steinklotz area to the Abbey in Haslach. AOC Grand Cru only dates back to 1975. Today there are 51 parcels which can lay claim to the AOC.

The Great Whites,
The Alsatian Tradition of still wines...

To taste the Alsace Blancs Grands Crus, or Grands Blancs (Great Whites) in the best conditions, it is advisable to observe a few simple rules for storing and serving : The Alsace Grands Crus, although pleasant to drink when very young, are much better if laid down for much longer (5 or 10 years, or even more for the best vintages), in a cellar at a constant

temperature (between 10 and 15°C), dark and well ventilated. The bottles must be laid horizontally so that the wine remains in contact with the cork at all times.

  • The Grands Blancs d’Alsace are served cold but not chilled, at a temperature of around 8°C in a fine crystal glass, transparent and with a long stem. The Alsace Grands Crus are gastronomic wines par excellence which accompany each stage
  • The Muscat d’Alsace is perfect for an aperitif. Riesling goes extremely well with all seafood, fish and shellfish. Pinot Gris is perfect with white meat, and foie gras. Gewurztraminer reigns supreme over cheeses and desserts.
