"Musky and sweetly perfumed rose petal and narcissus ally themselves with high-toned distilled-strength pit fruit and herbal essences as well as bacon fat in the strikingly attention-getting and already mouthwatering nose of Meyer-Fonne’s 2011 Gewurztraminer Reserve. The silken-textured palate does not disappoint, its subtle sweetness supporting lychee and nut pastes that mingle with saliva-liberating salinity in a lusciously long finish. This well-proportioned, subtly complex example of its genre clearly outperforms many ostensibly superior wines including in this same collection, offering sensational value and promising to delight through at least 2018. It was picked quite early from diverse parcels, including some with young vines that had already attracted a blush of botrytis. Meyer suggests that this cuvee’s relatively high volatile component has the advantage of helping to balance out the wine’s impression of sweetness. As to why it proves better-balanced and more impressive than most of its single vineyard counterparts, bear in mind that especially where botrytis is involved, luck plays a significant role. Furthermore, we could have here further evidence that under prevailing climatic conditions and trends cooler locations that are still deemed less-good as a matter of tradition are starting to outperform ostensibly top sites." 91 point

The Wine Advocate om Meyer Fonné
"Felix Meyer managed to prudently sidestep - albeit with perceptible caution - many of the pitfalls of vintage 2009, in which he harvested relatively early to retain fruit freshness, but bottled most of the wines only the following September. What we have - with Riesling anyway - is 2009 in a delightfully different key; and as for Meyer's 2008s, they are a resounding and consistent success, albeit weighted quite strongly toward sweetness when it comes to Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer. What's more, Meyer's collections harbor some fine values."


Domaine Meyer-Fonné

Domænet er opkaldt efter familiens slægtsnavn Meyer, der immigrerede til Frankrig i 1732, fra Schweiss, hvor familien har sin oprindelse. Generationer senere stiftede Félix Meyer dæmenet 'Meyer-Fonne', og begyndte at dyrke sin vin. Han familie blev siden hen ivolveret i dette foretagende, og har dyrket vin igennem tre genereationer siden hen. Kendskabet, der er blevet givet videre fra far til søn og datter, har medvirket til, at gøre Meyer-Fonné til et af de mest berygtede i Alsace, kendt for, på fornemmeste vis, at blande tradition og moderne vinfremstilling.

Vinene opnår ikke nogen lang levetid i domænets kældre, men bliver hurtigt solgt til vinfirmaer verden over. Domænet er opdyrket på et areal af 12 hektar, der strækker sig over 7 kommuner. Topvinene omfatter Riesling, Gewurztraminer og Pinot Gris Grand Cru.

Høsten forgår manuelt, vinen vinificeres på traditionel vis og lagres dernæst på fade i forskellige størrelser. Vinene kendetegnes som harmoniske, generøse og delikate som ganske unge, men har også råstof til lagring. Tålmod belønnes, som man siger.

Reserve Personelle serien er udvalgte fade fra deklassificerede Grand Cru marker eller speciele parceller. Felix Meyer serien er husets basisvin, flotte og rene vine med god friskhed og pæn fylde.

Domaine Meyer-Fonné er ratet "excellent producer" hos Parker.
