Made from 40 year old vines, dry, nutty, full, with hints of ripe pear and honey on the nose.  A superb example of this grape variety by Josmeyer, our favourite Alsace producers. The nose of rich pear and the lemony palate are driven forward by the purity of the fruit. There is body and depth to the wine, ideal with lobster, seafood and white fish. 

About the producer: The estate was established in 1854 in the charming village of Wintzenheim and spans over 28 hectares of prime Alsatian terroir. The Meyer family has owned and operated the winery for five generations. In the 1990s, Jean Meyer made the bold decision to shift the estate to organic and biodynamic practices, which is credited with transforming it into one of the premier wineries in Alsace. After his passing, his daughters, Celine and Isabelle, took over the management of the winery and now produce the stunning wines made today.
