Alsace Wine Reviews

Growing grapes in Alsace.


The different types of grapes.

Wines from Alsace



More than 90% of the wines in Alsace are white. Riesling and Gewurzt are among the best white wines in France. Wine makers raise them in a style you can't find nowhere else but in a wine from Alsace.


The most important wines in Alsace are:

Riesling is the most elegant grape of the Alsace region. It gives dry, neat, graceful and well-balanced wine. Riesling is known to be the finest Alsace wine.
Riesling is brilliant with fish, shell-fish, poultry, cold meat and famous Alsatian dishes such as sauerkraut or smoked ham.
Do not confuse with the German Riesling which is a sweet wine.

Gewurztraminer is the most typical Alsatian wine. Gewûrz means "spicy" in german. It is the main characteristic of the Gewurztraminer. Traminer means "coming from Tramin", a small city in south Tyrol of Austria where the grape is coming from.
The wine is delicious, fruity and with strong aromas, a very perfumed and flowery bouquet.
Thick and rich wine, which can age, Gewurztraminer is better with sauerkraut, sausages and the Alsatian cheese Munster, curry seasoned dishes, chinese and mexican cooking and other spiced dishes. A Gewurztraminer can even be served as a dessert wine.

Pinot Blanc is less aromatic than other white wines in Alsace. However Pinot Blanc balances between softness and freshness to make the lightest wine in Alsace.
Pinot Blanc grape is often combined with Klevner and Auxerrois grapes which give more alsacian flavor to the wine.

Pinot Gris - the name of this wine is still a mystery. Tokay of Alsace is made 100% from Pinot Gris grape variety which is from Alsace itself or Burgundy and has never been linked with Hungary. Pinot Gris grape information
Pinot Gris is a full-body white wine. It is such a rich and round white that it can even replace red wine with a red meat dish. However white meat is generally recommended with Tokay Pinot Gris. At its best, it can be served with Foie Gras!

Sylvaner is originally coming from Austria and was introduced in Alsace only 2 centuries ago.
Sylvaner gives a pleasant, fresh, fruity and dry wine. It is better young served as an aperitif or with fish.
