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)

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.

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

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....
