|What experts say|
87/100 "The 2014 Gewurztraminer Réserve comes from younger vines (20 years) on top sites like Fürstentum, Kaefferkopf and Wineck Schlossberg. Citrus colored, it is impressively clear, refined and aromatic on the nose. Super juicy, round and piquant on the palate, this is a powerful and well-structured but not that overloaded Gewurztraminer. The wine has grip and varies its orange, rose and spicy aromas from the nose to the finish. This is a digestible Gewurz from great terroirs, a very gastronomic wine with a salty aftertaste that goes well as aperitif or with cheese. ” (2014 vintage)
|91/100 "This compact, vibrant white is medium-bodied and well-cut, delivering tightly knit flavors of apricot, kumquat, smoke and cantaloupe, with hints of honey and lychee. Dry and focused, with a well-spiced finish." (2013 vintage)|
This Pinot Blanc is the first wine we tasted from Meyer-Fonné and it instantly caught our interest: just too good for the price... This "old vine" offers yummy flavours of yellow peach, white flowers and apple, with a beautiful freshness on the finish. Much more pleasant and complex than its price suggests.
With this Riesling, we've decided to drop the entry-level Riesling of the domain and offer this "Lieu-Dit" instead, which represents a big step-up in quality for just a few extra pounds. This is a very classy and feminine cuvée, offering fresh flavours of citrus, grapefruit and white peach - and a long, complex finish. A truly elegant wine from...
Forget every cheap "Pinot Grigio" you've ever tasted, this is what it really is! You might choke when you hear the name of this "infamous" grape, but do you know that it originally came from Alsace and that a real winemaker's Pinot Gris has nothing to do with what you can get in your local pub! Half made from "Grand Cru" classified vines, this stunning...
Coming from different parcels and 40 years old vines, this fruity Pinot Noir is charming and elegant. It also reminds us that when in the right hands, this grape has also a lot to offer in Alsace - and can often show better value than pricey, average bottles from Burgundy. A simple and direct Pinot Noir with plenty of fruits and very little oak....
What a superb bottle! Moving up to the highest ranking in Alsace, this Grand Cru is wonderful. Made from vines benefiting from a South exposure, it offers concentrated flavours of ripe yellow fruit, toast, almonds, honey... and much more. All of this surrounded by a solid acidity and a structured backbone, bringing a fresh and complex character to the...
Domaine Meyer-Fonné elaborates late harvest cuvées only during the best vintages, when exceptional and strict conditions are all met together. This Pinot Gris shows an unbelievable nose of flowers, spices and ripe apricot & melon. Palate is profound and perfectly balanced, telling a lot about how well this wine will develop in the years to come. When it...
