Cuvee d’Alsace

Cuvee d’Alsace Wine Details
Price: $14.00 per bottle

Description: A harmonious blend of Auxerrois, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer — A taste of Alsace, France right in the glass.

Varietal Definition
French local name for the Malbec, aka Cot red wine grape species grown in the Cahors region of France and also, confusingly, an important white wine grape in the Alsace region called the Auxerrois Blanc that is distinct from another locally grown white wine grape called the Auxerrois Gris that is actually the Pinot Gris varietal grape.
Parent grape of the popular Gewurztraminer clone. Still grown in France and in California but almost everywhere has been replaced by its much more intense and spicy offspring clone.
