Alsace Grand Cru with Laure Adam
This show was published 15 June 2020
Laure Adam is 15th generation family member of Jean-Baptiste Adam, one of the oldest wineries in Alsace, established in 1614. We talk about the region, its climate and grapes. There are 51 Grand Crus which only started to be categorised in the 1980s. The Kaefferkopf Grand Cru is famous for its blended wine made with Gewurtztraminer (min. 60%) and Riesling plus a small proportion of Muscat or Pinot Gris is allowed. There are talks of a Premier Cru category being introduced but no final plans.
There are 9 grape varieties: 4 noble grapes Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris & Muscat with Sylvaner, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Auxerrois and for red, Pinot Noir.
The UK Wine Show is sponsored by ThirtyFifty. Our team of wine tasters are busy entertaining and educating UK consumers to help them get the most out of wine.
The music used for the UK Wine Show is Griffes de Jingle 1 by Marcel de la Jartèle and Silence by Etoile Noire.
