Thank you Peter Plaehn and Blake Leja for your responses last week on Jess Jackson!
This week: Alsace
Alsace created separate AOPs for its grand crus in 2011. What may have been impetus for this and what advantages/disadvantages could it have created?
I don't think consumer confusion should be a deterrent here -- we seem to have no problem delighting in the complexities of Burgundy and telling anyone who will listen about them. We just have to apply the same diligence and passion to this region, and any others that are working to develop a system that encourages quality and specificity of place.
