Tasting Notes

This very aromatic and floral wine from the village of Katzenthal is from a producer who specializes in Gewürztraminer. The winemaker at Meyer-Fonné is a Zind-Humbrecht disciple, so there is some richness on the palate that is exquisitely balanced with acidity.

Staff Pick Notes

Gewürztraminer is the most braggadocious of the noble grapes of Alsace. It makes itself known, and shows off all its riches from the first whiff onward. Meyer-Fonné 's Reserve bottling is redolent with its aromatic baubles. This is an unabashedly fragrant, floral, spicy, oily, and off-dry Gewürztraminer in all of its Alsatian glory. A wine to make the tulip fields of Holland bow down before it and pay respect. In this bottle are all one million of Alla Pugacheva's roses, with white pepper, a touch of residual sugar, and a slew of aromatic back up singers. Absolutely lovely with intensely savory foods. creamy cheeses, anything involving rosemary or sage. This wine hits all the right notes, right on the beat.
