Félix Meyer is a rising star in Alsace and has instinct for his craft. He is the third generation in his family to be making wine since his grandfather founded the domaine in the late 19th century. He's a master at the art of blending, applying this skill in mixing wine from various parcels into complex blends, these being his Gentil, Ezelswicker, and Crémant d'Alsace. He also believes in raising his wines on fine lees in large, older foudres, as is the tradition in Alsace. All of Meyer’s bottlings are characterized by stunning aromatics, his signature minerality, and nerve. His wines are tempting to drink young but have all the right qualities to age. For aromatic and textural elegance, no one in Alsace can top Meyer-Fonné. He endeavors in several varietal bottlings at village and Grand Cru level, using the classic Alsatian varieties.
This blend of Muscat, Pinot Blanc and Riesling is bone-dry and bursting with fruit. It delivers a beautiful flavor profile that, frankly, is challenging to describe. Food pairings with this wine run the gamut of just about anything you can imagine serving with any white wine. From lighter meats and soft cheeses to game dishes and salads, this Gentil will be easy to pair, and difficult to outmatch.
