Pinot Gris Grand Cru Kaefferkopt is a superb example of the finesse and complexity that can be achieved in Alsace. It is an expressive wine with dried fruit, ripe pear and spiced notes which combine to make a wine of elegance, precision and gastronomic weight. It is a real treat and will benefit for extended bottle aging.

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.
