COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 2827/82

of 22 October 1982

authorizing the Federal Republic of Germany and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg to permit under certain conditions an additional increase in the alcoholic strength of certain wines and certain products intended for wine-making

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN

COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 337/79 of 5 February 1979 on the common organization of the market in wine (1), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2144/82 (2), and in particular Articles 32 (4) and 65 thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 338/79 of 5 February 1979 laying down special provisions relating to quality wines produced in specified regions (3), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2145/82 (4), and in particular the third subparagraph of Article 8 (2) thereof,

Whereas under Article 32 (1) of Regulation (EEC) No 337/79 the Member States may permit an increase in the actual or potential natural alcoholic strength only within certain limits;

Whereas, because of the exceptionally unfavourable climatic conditions in 1982 in some parts of zone A where there was an abnormally high rainfall, the limits upon increases in the natural alcoholic strength as fixed by Article 32 (1) of Regulation (EEC) No 337/79 in case of grapes issued from the Elbling variety prevent the production of the wines which are normally required by the market; whereas, therefore, the Member States concerned should be authorized to permit in the areas affected an additional increase in the natural alcoholic strength as provided for in Article 32 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 337/79; whereas provision should be made for the Member States to communicate to the Commission certain information, in particular under Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1594/70 (5), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 632/80 (6);

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Wine;

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
