In Alsace, Pinot Gris has seen success after success growing in planted surface area more than any other variety since the 80s. Formerly AOC Tokay d'Alsace, it was wrongly named because it was reminiscent of the Hungarian wine Tokay Pinot Gris. The ruling regulatory body decided to replace the old AOC by that of Alsace Pinot Gris, as in this region, it is the grape varieties that give name to the appellations. Pinot Gris is not very productive, which results in high demand for its subtle and racy wines. It produces dry or sweet white wines, as well as more rarely rosé wines.
