Alsace seems to have it all : 2 of the country’s most gorgeous cities, linked by one of France’s most evocative drives, The Alsace Wine Route. From Strasbourg and its monumental cathedral featuring carvings as delicate as any piece of lacework, to Colmar "capital of Alsatian wine", both of them offering twisting alleys lined with crooked half-timbered houses à la Grimm by delightfull bridge-laced canals

. And both old towns looking as though they have been plucked from the pages of a medieval folk tale. And in between those 2 jewels, the splendid Alsace Wine Route, 170 km of scenic landscapes and gently rolling countryside, striped with vines at the foot of the eastern slopes of the Vosges mountains, from medieval villages and half-timbered houses decorated with flowers, to fortified castles and Roman churches....

  Thirteen distinct terroirs make Alsace a mosaic unlike anywhere else. Here, minerality and freshness aren’t just concepts, they are the story of the wines.

Among Alsace’s noble varieties, Riesling is the indisputable king. But be sure that Alsace wine will change your perception of a traditionally sweet Riesling. Here, it gives an elegant and dry wine, with aromas ranging from delicate fruit such as lemon, grapefruit, peach and pear to richer expressions such as stewed fruits, flowers and spices. Rieslings from Alsace have abundant freshness, opulence and a rich mid-palate, yet, their racy acidity keeps them exceptionally well-balanced.
