2017 Gentil d’Alsace

Meyer-Fonné

The pinnacle of Alsatian wine is undoubtedly expressed with its famed grand cru Rieslings and Pinot Gris, as well as its mesmerizing, long-lived late-harvest wines. But consider the other end of the spectrum: entry-level Alsatians offer a delicious introduction to the region at approachable prices, while their versatile, refreshing nature makes them apt for virtually any situation. Meyer-Fonné’s Gentil showcases three local grapes—Riesling, Pinot Blanc, and Muscat—in a dry style, featuring delicate floral aromatics and a crisp, zippy finish. This ethereal charmer, which can be sipped on its own as an apéritif, complements a wide range of cuisines. Alsatian cured meats, like smoked ham, or the perennial tarte flambée are no-brainers, but this white’s exotic perfume and lithe body also pair well with the cuisine of Southeast Asia. Pop open a bottle at your next picnic or, better yet, bring one to your favorite Vietnamese restaurant for a seamless match.

About Alsace

Tragically, Alsace might be the most misunderstood wine region of France. In spite of its long history of viticulture and tremendous diversity of pedigreed terroirs, a past fraught with marketing mishaps has left consumers baffled as to what exactly to expect inside one of these mysterious tall, thin bottles.

The good news, on the other hand, is that a new wave of quality-oriented growers is working hard to put Alsace in its rightful place as one of the world’s most fascinating sources of fine white wine. By embracing tradition, respecting terroir, and making a concerted effort to better communicate the countless virtues their wines have to offer, they have succeeded in putting Alsace back on the map.

Crafted from a number of grape varieties and beautifully interpreting the region’s mosaic of soil types, our Alsace imports are by and large dry whites offering exceptional versatility at table. While each of these selections is ready to be uncorked tonight, the finest among them are also capable of maturing for many, many years in a cool cellar. Expect kaleidoscopic aromatics, lively acidities, and loads of terroir transparency in these skillfully crafted masterpieces. Enjoy a foray into the thrilling world of the world’s most underrated wine region, and certainly do not hesitate to contact our sales staff with any questions as you take off on this mouth-watering adventure.
