40% of France's Appellation Controllée white wine comes from Alsace, and yet it makes up barely 2% of UK wine sales: we're missing out! The good news is that such suppressed demand means splendid value for consumers.
The joy of these wines is in their style: un-oaked and delicate, scented and often spicy they possess a real old-world charm.
To really understand Alsatian wine you have to think about food (like the folk in Alsace seem to most of the time). Alsace in the gastronomic powerhouse of France – it sports more Michelin-starred establishments than anywhere outside Paris. And I reckon there’s not one top eatery in France or the UK that doesn’t feature wine from Alsace. From delicate starters, all kinds of white meat and fish dishes, to the richest of sauces and most complex of dishes there’s an Alsatian white to match.
