At the head of this family domaine is Patrick Meyer, who humbly describes himself as a peasant winemaker, and is also a fervent supporter of biodynamics, which he received the certification for in 1993. That is how he produces his Gewurztraminer Les Pucelles which he also vinifies with great care and in a way which makes it a beautifully crafted wine. The noble grape variety that it is made from comes from different terroirs such as that of Zellberg, which is rich in silt, and that of Fronholtz, which is composed of clay and limestone. Benefiting from these components, the wine is distinguished by an unparalleled strength, power and minerality. Tasting allows us to contemplate its beautifully intense golden colour which unleashes a complex and varied blend of aromas. We find notes of candied fruit, ginger, cinnamon, rose, lychee and exotic fruits. Although it is a dry wine, it has a certain fullness and a lovely sweetness. Light as air, despite everything, it thus proves all the talent of this winegrower and winemaker from Alsace. To take the moment of tasting to the next level, we recommend pairing this wine with Munster cheese flavoured with cumin, or with poultry with almonds, olives and candied lemon.
