2022 Muscat ‘Reserve’, Meyer-Fonné

When visiting winemakers in Alsace, it rarely happens that a vigneron spontaneously mentions any nearby colleagues, and it is good manners of an importer to not bring up the subject. But I now understand that there is great admiration of the Meyer-Fonné among his Alsace colleagues, and especially admired is the technical skill that Félix Meyer possesses. This brilliant 12 ha domaine exploits vineyards in seven communes.

Félix Meyer is one of the bright stars in Alsace producing excellent wines from his property in Katzenthal.

Bright straw-yellow. Musky aromas of white flowers and lime, complicatedby an obvious mineral element.  Supple on the palate, offering moderately intense flavors of grapefruit, tangerine and rose petal. Finishes fresh, floral, and persistent and dry than These vines in the Hinterbourg are principally on deep granite soils, which explains this wine's mineral bent.
