Some of them have been famous for more than a thousand years, others for several decades, but all come from privileged terroirs where geology, climate and exhibition form an exceptional harmony. All of them are born from this special alchemy that unites air, earth, vines and the art of men.
Very early on, the Alsatian winegrowers noticed the specificities that certain places called conferred on the cultivation of their vines and their wines. Since the 9th century, Alsatian winegrowers have referred to the notion of Grands Crus.
Thus, the best terroirs are born from the observation and know-how of generations of winegrowers.
Over time, they have revealed the most remarkable soils, often steep and ideally exposed.
Today, 51 terroirs delimited according to strict geological and climatic criteria make up the mosaic of Alsace's Grands Crus. The resulting wines account for about 5% of production.
