Félix Meyer is a rising star in Alsace and has an evident 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. It’s all about the details at Meyer-Fonné, with an emphasis on tradition and respect for terroir. The winery and family home is in the village of Katzenthal, known for its distinctive granite soils. Meyer-Fonne wines are true expressions of Alsace; dry, racy and long on the finish.
Winemaker Felix Meyer is honed in on best potential between pairings of grape variety and soil type. With a glass of this wine, its clear why Kaefferkopf is considered one of Alsace’s best crus. While some faces of Riesling are taut and austere, a terroir of limestone, sandstone, and clay makes for a bolder, richer, elegant one, with citrus and tropical notes, and great ageability.
