Very aromatic with pure notes of rose, spices, and exotic fruit. It presents a rich, extra-ripe finish to the palate with notes of honey, without being heavy. As an aperitif, solo, with strong cheeses, and also to accompany exotic cuisines.
There are records stating that the Swiss family Meyer arrived in Katzenthal in 1732. The house of Meyer-Fonné dates back three generations, with Félix Meyer, the current incumbent, working 15 hectares over seven different communes, including five notable Grand Cru sites. The wines are raised in a combination of ancient foudre and stainless steel, depending on the variety and size of the parcel, although the same plot is usually vinified in the same vessel each vintage. Regardless of the cuvée or cépage, they are all defined by their elegance, delicacy and refinement and, for the most part, all are vinified dry. The only exceptions here are the Gewürztraminer Réserve and Gewürztraminer Grand Cru Sporen, which carry 32 and 45 grams of residual sugar, respectively.
