Domaine Meyer-Fonne 'Alternbourg' 2019

MEYER-FONNÉ 2019 PINOT NOIR ALTENBOURG ALSACE (NA) RED 90+

The 2019 Pinot Noir Altenbourg is the rst release of a rented plot with 20-year-old vines that is located on oolitic limestone soils and is west-facing (there will be a total 0.7 hectare in the future

planted in 2012, 2014 and 2017, with the nest Pinot clones). Fermented with 30% of the stems, this Pinot opens with a pure, deep, fresh and aromatic, pretty spicy bouquet of red cabbage, cloves and toast. Silky textured, ne and elegant, this is a full-bodied, stunningly rich and elegant Pinot with a seductively juicy and savory fruit, as well as remarkable vitality. Still a bit reductive and rm, but with ne tannins, this wine has an excellent ageing potential. It also indicates an excellent terroir for Pinot Noir. Anticipated maturity: 2019 - 2027.
