Riesling "Vignoble de Katzenthal" 2014 Alsace - Domaine Meyer-Fonné


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 Katzenthal, one of the most prestigious villages of Alsace - and possibly the best "Non-Grand Cru" Riesling we ever had. It definitely shows how a gifted-winemaker Félix Meyer is.

What experts say  
  
 
88+/100 "Sourced from the granite hillsides around Katzenthal (including younger vines from the Grand Cru Wineck-Schlossenberg), the 2013 Riesling Vignoble de Katzenthal offers a very clear and concentrated nose  with white fruit and floral aromas. Intense and concentrated yet pure, firm and racy on the palate, this Riesling finishes with a good grip and spicy granite character.” (2013 vintage)
