Product Details

'Vignoble de Katzenthal' is a single vineyard Muscat from the amazing Domaine Meyer Fonne. The wine has a very distinctive nose which is floral and full of very youthful, primary fruit like green grapes, pear and green apple. Very crisp on the palate, this is a very fine aperitif wine. It should also be tried with salads, asparagus, artichokes and a mild cheeses.

Domaine Meyer Fonne was founded in the late 1800’s by Felix Meyer and is still run today 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. The diversity of soil type and vineyard exposure throughout these areas has meant that several different grape varieties can flourish. It is one of the world’s greatest examples of terroir and has led to Alsace being one of the most diverse grape growing regions in the world. The Domaine is organic in everything but name and Felix also uses a few Biodynamic techniques. Felix also prefers to use large, older foudres (wooden barrels) in conjunction with stainless steel vats for the more aromatic varieties. This gives the wines a delicacy and complexity which is unique to the area.
