Meyer-Fonne Edelzwicker Region Alsace
Though Alsace is best known for its stunning varietal wines, the Edelzwicker is a notable exception. These “noble blends” may contain any combination of the region’s numerous permitted white grape varieties—in this case, Pinot Blanc, Muscat, Chasselas, and Riesling make up the mix. Unlike many wines from nearby Germany, which often have a touch of residual sweetness, Alsace prides itself on its dry wines, and here is a great example. Delicate, floral, and highly aromatic, Félix Meyer’s Edelzwicker is an insider’s ticket to the wonders of Alsace at a bargain cost. It is above all a pleasure wine, offering abundant fruit and freshness with a frisky, stony finish that makes it incredibly versatile with may meals, Charcuterie plates, and Fondue gatherings.
Félix Meyer is a rising star in Alsace and has an evident instinct for his craft. Since taking over in the family Domaine 1992, Félix has already left his own mark, modernizing equipment in the winery, developing export sales, and now expanding the family’s holdings in many of Alsace’s great vineyard sites, including several grand crus. It’s all about the details at Meyer-Fonné, with an emphasis on tradition and respect for terroir.
