Alsace : The Grands Crus obtain greater flexibility
T
he legislation governing the production of the Grands Crus from Alsace was modified in 2001. Amongst the changes it offered greater autonomy to the Alsatian syndicates concerning the management of their terroir and their grape varieties. As a result they can now use some new varieties in addition to the four traditional ones authorised in the production of the Grand Cru from Alsace - Muscat, Riesling, Tokay Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer. Three years down the track, two Grand Crus have received the go ahead from the INAO in relation to these modifications. Blended wine can now be sold under the Alsace Grand Crus Altenberg label, in additional to Riesling, Tokay Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer varietals, while Alsace Grand Crus Zotzenberg can now produce wine out of Sylvaner instead of Muscat.
