Meyer Fonne Pinot Noir Reserve is a delicious glass of wine. It has a fine, elegant nose and is packed full of bright red fruit, cherry and wild strawberry notes, with darker red fruit and earthy aromas coming through on the finish. Full bodied yet fresh on the palate and slightly spicy on the finish, it is very typically Pinot Noir and readily accompanies cooked meats, grills and white meats.

Domaine Meyer Fonne was founded in the late 1800s by Felix Meyer and is still run today by Felix’s great grandson, also called Felix. The Domaine now covers 18 hectares over 7 communes, namely Katzenthal, Ammerschwihr, Ingersheim, Riquewihr, Kientzheim, Colmar and Bennwihr. The diversity of soil type and vineyard exposure throughout these areas is so phenomenal that you’re almost guaranteed to see groups of university students and amateur geologists surveying the unique land. The area is one of the world’s greatest examples of terroir and its soil diversity means that several grape varieties can flourish here making it one of the most varied grape growing regions in the world.

The Domaine has always been farmed organically and Felix likes to play around with 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, depth and complexity which is quite special and most pronounced on the Grand Cru wines. Although Alsace is famous for being a white wine producing region, Felix makes some of the best Pinot Noirs we have tried. The aptly named ‘Gallus’ is amazing and should be snapped up when we have it. Buying his Cremant is also one of the most sensible choices you’ll ever make.
