As an aperitif, a Muscat or a Gewurztraminer will display the originality of their aroma and the fullness of their structure.

With a meal, seafood has every chance to be enhanced by a Riesling Grand Cru : magnificently structured, with subtle mineral aromas, it makes an unforgettable match for the delicate iodine flavours of shellfish, fish and crustaceans.

With poultry, veal or lamb, and game, in fact all the rich, rounded aromatic dishes that are so popular during autumn and winter, the dignified opulence of the Pinot Gris Grands Crus will be perfect.

Gewurztraminer can be astonishingly powerful, exuberantly aromatic yet, depending on the complex influence of its terroir and climate, also elegant and aristocratically refined.
Such wines make perfect partners when exploring Asian and Oriental cuisine, where spices and sweet-and-savoury contrasts have always predominated.
Characterful cheeses are yet another favoured match.

Grand Crus « Vendanges Tardives » (Late-harvest) or « Sélections de Grains Nobles» ( Selection of Noble Grapes) wines bring an added dimension to desserts and bring each special meal to an unforgettable conclusion.

Alsace Grand Cru wines, by their fabulous diversity, are gastronomic wines "par excellence".

World-renowned Chefs have long recognised this fact, and have created a multitude of dishes to match these wines in pleasurable and perfect harmony.

Consume alcohol in moderation. The abuse of alcohol can harm your health.
