Product Details

Meyer Fonne Pinot Gris Reserve is nothing but pure joy in a glass! Pinot Gris is the same grape variety as Pinot Grigio but in Alsace it makes a far more intense and complex vine than your average Italian Pinot Grigio. Half of the grapes for this wine originate from the Kaefferkopf Grand Cru vineyard which gives real finesse and delivers intense aromas of ripe stone fruits, touches of honey, lime, smoky hints and a fresh minerality. Perfect with terrines, pork and white meats.

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.
