MAP! Detailed Google Map of Alsace with all Grand Crus.

One of my favorite white wine producing regions in the world is Alsace. Capable of crafting many different styles from dry sparkling to lusciously sweet, Alsace is an often underrated. Noble varieties like Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Muscat deliver each a unique expression of the terroir.

The Alsace Grand Cru classification, like in Burgundy is a designation given to the best vineyards. The regulations are the following:

Varietal Wines: labeled by Grand Cru Vineyard and varietal (100% of the stated variety is required in the assemblage)

  • Riesling
  • Gewurztraminer
  • Pinot Gris
  • Muscat (Muscat Ottonel, Muscat Blanc Ă  Petit Grains, and/or Muscat RosĂ© Ă  Petits Grains)
  • Muscat Ottonel
  • Sylvaner (Zotzenberg Grand Cru only)
  • Muscat is not authorized for varietal wines from Zotzenberg,Altenberg de Bergheim, or Kaefferkopf.

  • Blends:

  • Altenberg de Bergheim: 50-70% Riesling, 10-25% Pinot Gris, 10-25% Gewurztraminer, max. 10% combined Chasselas, Muscat, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Blanc
  • Kaefferkopf: 60-80% Gewurztraminer, 10-40% Riesling, max. 30% Pinot Gris, max. 10% Muscat
  • Altenberg de Bergheim and Kaefferkopf may also produce varietal Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, and Riesling.
