COUNCIL REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 338/79

OF 5 FEBRUARY 1979

LAYING DOWN SPECIAL PROVISIONS RELATING TO QUALITY WINES PRODUCED IN SPECIFIED REGIONS

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES ,

HAVING REGARD TO THE TREATY ESTABLISHING THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY , AND IN PARTICULAR ARTICLE 43 THEREOF ,

HAVING REGARD TO THE PROPOSAL FROM THE COMMISSION ( 1 ) ,

HAVING REGARD TO THE OPINION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT ( 2 ) ,

WHEREAS COUNCIL REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 337/79 OF 5 FEBRUARY 1979 ON THE COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN WINE ( 3 ) PROVIDES FOR A SYSTEM WHICH , IN SO FAR AS ITS SCOPE IS NOT RESTRICTED TO OTHER PRODUCTS , APPLIES ALSO TO QUALITY WINES PRODUCED IN SPECIFIED REGIONS ; WHEREAS THAT SYSTEM EMBRACES IN PARTICULAR CERTAIN COMMON RULES ON PRODUCTION ;

WHEREAS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A POLICY OF ENCOURAGING QUALITY PRODUCTION IN AGRICULTURE AND ESPECIALLY IN WINE GROWING IS BOUND TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE IMPROVEMENT OF CONDITIONS ON THE MARKET AND , AS A RESULT , TO AN INCREASE IN OUTLETS ; WHEREAS THE ADOPTION OF ADDITIONAL COMMON RULES IN LINE WITH REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 337/79 WHICH CONCERN THE PRODUCTION AND CONTROL OF QUALITY WINES PRODUCED IN SPECIFIED REGIONS FALLS WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF THIS POLICY AND CAN CONTRIBUTE TOWARDS THE ATTAINMENT OF THESE OBJECTIVES ;

WHEREAS , TAKING INTO ACCOUNT TRADITIONAL CONDITIONS OF PRODUCTION , THE NATURE AND SCOPE OF THE FACTORS WHICH ENABLE EACH OF THE QUALITY WINES PRODUCED IN SPECIFIED REGIONS TO BE DISTINGUISHED MUST BE LISTED AND DEFINED ; WHEREAS A COMMON ATTEMPT TO HARMONIZE QUALITY REQUIREMENTS MUST NEVERTHELESS BE MADE ;

WHEREAS THE NATURAL ALCOHOLIC STRENGTH BY VOLUME OF GRAPES AT THE TIME OF HARVEST IS A FACTOR IN ASSESSING THEIR DEGREE OF RIPENESS ; WHEREAS IT APPEARS NECESSARY TO FIX THE MINIMUM NATURAL ALCOHOLIC STRENGTH BY VOLUME OF QUALITY WINES PSR IN THE VARIOUS WINE-GROWING REGIONS AT A LEVEL SUCH AS TO ENSURE , EVEN IN POOR YEARS , THAT THE GRAPES USED IN THEIR MANUFACTURE HAD REACHED A SATISFACTORY DEGREE OF RIPENESS ;

WHEREAS IT MAY PROVE NECESSARY , IN SOME YEARS , TO PERMIT THE ENRICHMENT OF PRODUCTS SUITABLE FOR THE PRODUCTION OF A QUALITY WINE PSR OR A QUALITY SPARKLING WINE PSR ; WHEREAS , CONSEQUENTLY , THE EXCEPTIONAL ENRICHMENT OF TABLE WINES WHICH IS PROVIDED FOR IN ARTICLE 32 ( 2 ) OF REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 337/79 SHOULD BE DISSOCIATED FROM THAT OF QUALITY WINES PSR AND SPARKLING QUALITY WINES PSR AS REGARDS THE POSSIBILITY OF AUTHORIZING IT IN THE WINE-GROWING AREA CONCERNED ;

WHEREAS , MOREOVER , SINCE ACIDITY IS A FACTOR IN ASSESSING THE QUALITY OF WINE AND IN DETERMINING ITS BEHAVIOUR , IT HAS APPEARED NECESSARY TO FIX THE MAXIMUM LEVEL OF ACIDIFICATION ;

WHEREAS , IN ORDER TO PRESERVE AS FAR AS POSSIBLE THE SPECIFIC CHARACTER BESTOWED BY ITS ORIGIN ON EACH QUALITY WINE PSR AND TO SIMPLIFY THE WORK OF THE INSPECTION AGENCIES , SUCH WINE MAY , EXCEPT IN CERTAIN CASES TO BE DETERMINED , BE SWEETENED ONLY WITHIN THE SPECIFIED REGION IN QUESTION AND SOLELY BY MEANS OF A PRODUCT ORIGINATING IN THE SAME REGION IN ACCORDANCE WITH RULES TO BE LAID DOWN WITHIN CERTAIN LIMITS BY THE MEMBER STATES ;

WHEREAS , IN ORDER TO ENSURE UNIFORM APPLICATION OF THE PROVISIONS RELATING TO QUALITY WINES PSR , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING METHODS OF ANALYSIS TO DEAL WITH SPECIFIC CASES ;

WHEREAS , IN ORDER TO PROTECT PRODUCERS FROM UNFAIR COMPETITION AND CONSUMERS FROM ERROR AND FRAUD , THE TERMS " QUALITY WINE PRODUCED IN A SPECIFIED REGION " AND " QUALITY SPARKLING WINE PRODUCED IN A SPECIFIED REGION " MUST BE RESERVED FOR WINES WHICH COMPLY WITH COMMUNITY PROVISIONS , WHILE USE OF TRADITIONAL SPECIFIC DESIGNATIONS MUST NOT BE EXCLUDED ,
