Domaine Meyer-Fonne Reserve Pinot Gris 2012
Felix Meyer is a master at the art of blending and carefully applies this skill in blending the wine from various parcels into complex, balanced cuvees. He also believes in raising his wines on fine lees in large, older wooden casks, as the tradition in Alsace. Striking aromatics, beautiful complexity and a signature mineral spine characterize all of Meyer's wines. Bright and elegant, the wines offer tremendous drinking at a young age but have all the right qualities for laying down in the cellar.
Originating in part from the Kaefferkopf Grand Cru, it presents a complex nose mixing together spices, dry fruit and some smoky notes. The finish is full and robust, with a dry character. This is the archetypical Pinot Gris for the table, with white meats, poultry and terrines.
