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)
