Alsace: Uniquely French

Wines from Alsace stand apart from wines made in other French wine regions. On the country’s eastern border with Germany, the area has been disputed throughout much of its history and has spent some time being part of each country. Germanic influence is strong and extends to the grape varieties grown, most of which are grown nowhere else in France but are prevalent in Germany. The similarity ends there. Wines from Alsace – overwhelmingly white – are rich, bone dry and distinctly different from those made across the border. Pinot Noir stands alone as the only red grape grown in Alsace. Here are our tasting panel’s recommendations.
