The Domaine was founded in the late 1800’s by Felix Meyer and is still run by Felix’s great grandson, also Felix. The domaine now covers 12 hectares over 7 communes, namely Katzenthal, Ammerschwihr, Ingersheim, Riquewihr, Kientzheim, Colmar and Bennwihr. Within this is a great diversity of soil types and exposure which suits different grape varieties and is one of France’s greatest examples of terrior. The domaine is organic in everything but name and the wines really speak for themselves. They all possess a delicacy and complexity which is unique to the area. I hugely recommend trying them.
The Muscat has a delicate nose, floral and reminiscent of the Muscat grape. Crisp, dry and smooth, this is a very fine aperitif wine. It should also be tried with salads, asparagus, artichokes and a mild cheeses.
