Auxerrois can offer quality white wine with varied palette of citrus flavors, often with a rich, musky aroma profile. As it ages, it can show honeyed aromas and will deepen in color. Cooler climate helps this low-acid grape variety achieve fine levels of freshness.
Alsace, located on the northeastern border of France, differs from other wine regions in the country with its pronounced Franco–German culture. This is the result of historical events influencing the changing borders between Germany and France in recent centuries - and they are visible not only in Alsatian architecture and culture, but also in wines. Alsace is the only wine-growing region in France with the famous Riesling and Gewürztraminer. Both of these grapes are more often associated with German wines and serve as reminders of the history of Alsace. Pinot Gris, commonly used in mixtures with different varieties in other regions, is another of the region's noble varieties. Alsatian Grand Cru wines are only allowed to be made from these three varieties, but there is an exception for Muscat grapes, which can be grown under special conditions. The Vosges Mountains play a key role in determining the microclimate of the region; they not only provide protection from the prevailing westerly winds, but also create a natural natural barrier from rain, which helps to reduce the amount of precipitation in the region.
