Alsace

Alsace

The Alsace wine region is situated in northeastern France on the Rhine river and borders Germany on the east. The geography of the Alsace wine region is defined by the Vosges mountains in the west and the Rhine river in the east. The Alsace vineyards are dotted along a narrow strip, running in a generally north-south pattern, on the lower eastern slopes of the Vosges, at altitudes of 574 ft. to 1,377 ft. Alsace wines are produced under three different Appellations d'Origine Contrôlées (AOCs): Alsace AOC for white, rosé and red wines, Alsace Grand Cru AOC for white wines from certain classified vineyards and Crémant d'Alsace AOC for sparkling wines.The Alsace wine region is the only French wine region allowed to label its wines based on varietal.

  1. Domaine Frey Sohler Pinot Gris
    Don't be fooled into thinking that this has any connection to Hungary! Instead, it is very much indicative of Alsace and as such has a rounded full body and a consistent finish with subtle smoky notes. With such a luxuriant and rich character, it's at its best when accompanying fine cuisine, roast foods and even red meats more typically paired with robust reds. Learn More
  2. Domaine Leon Boesch Riesling 'Biodynamic'
    When you think of Alsace, you think of Riesling and it's no surprise that many of the best wines in the region come from this variety of grape. This particular bottle keeps up this proud tradition and is a typically fragrant and crisp Riesling which has garnered great reviews, including an excellent rating from Decanter magazine. Learn More
  3. Domaine Frey Sohler Gewurztraminer

    A medal winning Gewurztraminer from Frey-Sohler that is indicative of the brothers' excellent output. Fairly typical for the variety yet with rich aromas of fruit, flowers and spices on the nose with great balance and refreshingly clean flavours and mouthfeel.

    Rating:
    100% of 100
    This is an absolutely glorious Pinot Noir from Domaine Boesch. More intense than Cabernet Sauvignon, it perhaps surprisingly has noticeably less tannin. As it’s such an uncommon wine and style, it is on many a ‘must-buy list’ of your average connoisseur. Learn More
