Pinot Noir Reserve 2014 Alsace - Domaine Meyer-Fonné

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. Refreshing and delicious!

What experts say  
  
87/100 "The 2013 Pinot Noir Reserve offers a lovely, fresh and aromatic cherry and red berry fruit with some nice spicy flavors on the nose. Full-bodied and compact on the palate, this is a fleshy, well structured and fresh Pinot with intensely sweet and ripe fruit, and good length. Very well done and truly stimulating with sausages and roasted meat. The grapes were sourced from different parcels (with all kind of soils: calcareous marl, granite and sandstone) with 80% of 40-year-old vines" (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...

If you've never tried a Gewurtztraminer, maybe this is time... because this is a great example, showing how special this grape is. It offers a sweet nose with explosive aromas of mango, passion fruit, rose and honey. Palate is heavy and complex but not too sweet. The ideal wine to drink with mild Asian food or blue cheese.å

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...

What a superb bottle! Moving up to the highest ranking in Alsace, this Grand Cru is wonderful.
