“Sélection de Grains Nobles” indicated on the label may apply to the appellations of Alsace or Alsace Grand Cru. This classification designates exceptional wines produced according to criteria that are among the strictest of all of the French AOC wines.
“Sélections de Grains Nobles” can be obtained through the successive hand-picking, in several passes, of grapes with Noble Rot (Botrytis Cinerea).
The concentration renders the identity of the specific grape varietal more subtle, creating greater overall intensity, complexity and exceptional length. These wines are true masterpieces.
