At Meyer-Fonné, embracing tradition, respecting terroir, and making a concerted effort to communicate the countless virtues of their wines, has enabled the domaine to succeed in putting Alsace back on the map. The winery and family home is in the village of Katzenthal, known for its distinctive granite soils. Meyer is a master at the art of blending and astutely applies this skill in mixing the wine from various parcels into complex, balanced cuvées. Their bottling of Gentil d’Alsace, named after the older meaning of the word, noble (and noble it is), is made up of 50% Riesling,and 25% is Muscat. You’ll find an elegant and chalky nose, on a delicate base of rose petals. But it’s the palate of lychees, yellow raspberries, and chamomile that shows the full omplexity of this dry, linear wine. –Julia Issleib
