Domaine Meyer Fonné Pinot Blanc Vieilles Vignes 2018
Domaine Meyer-Fonné Pinot Blanc Vieilles Vignes 2018
This is made from a blend of Pinot Blanc and the Auxerrois varieties. The latter is commonly planted alongside Pinot Blanc in Alsace, and its origins can be traced to nearby Lorraine. It adds weight and a buttery mouthfeel to the blend. This cuvée is made only from the oldest vines, with an age of 30 to 40 years.
It has an old vine – almost resinous – honeyed nose. On the palate there is lovely mouthfeel with hints of honey and melon. There is good concentration, and it finishes with crisp green apple acidity, leaving a gentle tingle of spritz on the tongue.
