Winemaker Notes

As a terroir on a very crumbly binary mica granite known as “de Turckheim” the Wineck-Schlossberg Grand Cru has a south-facing exposure. The nose is pure and delicate with elegant floral and spiced notes. The palate is ethereal, feminine, with a fresh finish and plenty of mineral tension. A dry, distinguished wine that keeps very well.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Aged on the lees until the bottling in September, the 2015 Riesling Wineck-Schlossberg displays a clear and intense bouquet of warm, ripe white fruits along with flinty and citrus flavors. Full-bodied and rich on the palate, this is a very powerful and intense Wineck-Schlossberg that offers intense, stewed fruit aromas, fine tannins and a well-structured and powerful finish. This is a mouthful of Riesling with a lot of flesh and concentration, whereas you shouldn't look for purity and tansparency here. This 2015 is pretty rich indeed.

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. The winery and family home is in the village of Katzenthal, known for its distinctive granite soils. Racy and elegant, his wines are difficult to resist young but have all the right qualities for the cellar. For aromatic and textural seductiveness, no one in Alsace can top Meyer-Fonné.

With its fairytale aesthetic, Germanic influence and strong emphasis on white wines, Alsace is one of France’s most unique viticultural regions. This hotly contested stretch of land running north to south on France’s northeastern border has spent much of its existence as German territory. Nestled in the rain shadow of the Vosges mountains, it is one of the driest regions of France but enjoys a long and cool growing season. Autumn humidity facilitates the development of “noble rot” for the production of late-picked sweet wines, Vendange Tardive and Sélection de Grains Nobles.

The best wines of Alsace can be described as aromatic and honeyed, even when completely dry. The region’s “noble” varieties, the only ones permitted within Alsace’s 51 Grands Crus vineyards, are Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, and Pinot Gris.

Riesling is Alsace’s main specialty. In its youth, Alsatian Riesling is dry, fresh and floral, but develops complex mineral and flint character with age. Gewurztraminer is known for its signature spice and lychee aromatics, and is often utilized for late harvest wines. Pinot Gris is prized for its combination of crisp acidity and savory spice as well as ripe stone fruit flavors. Muscat, vinified dry, tastes of ripe green grapes and fresh rose petal.

Other varieties grown here include Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Chasselas, Sylvaner and Pinot Noir—the only red grape permitted in Alsace and mainly used for sparkling rosé known as Crémant d’Alsace. Most Alsatian wines are single-varietal bottlings and unlike other French regions, are also labeled with the variety name.
