Fleur de Lotus Josmeyer NV
Our customers think:
- Fleur de Lotus NV, biodynamic blend of aromatic grape varieties perfect for Asian cuisine. The Fleur de Lotus, symbol of balance and harmony, is a blend of Auxerrois, Gewurztraminer and Riesling and is a delicious aromatic wine with a wild honeyed, tropical fruit and spicy character balanced with fresh acidity and subtle pulpy texture. For Gewurz fanatics this is a must-try wine. Exclusively vinified in stainless steel, this wine retains the pure characteristics of the grapes and their freshness.
Josmeyer was founded in 1854 by restaurant owner Aloyse Meyer who set about building on his father’s work in the wine trade.
Since then, the estate has passed through 5 generations of the Meyer family, with Jean Meyer responsible for switching the entire estate to organic and biodynamic culture. He is credited with elevating the estate to one of Alsace’s greats. After his death, his daughters Celine and Isabelle took over running of the estate. The 28 hectare estate is situated at Wintzenheim, and benefits from low annual rainfall, some of the lowest in France. Riesling and Pinot Blanc are given the largest sections of the estate, with Auxerrois, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Gewurztraminer also growing here. 5 distinct terroirs make up the estate, 2 of which have achieved Grand Cru status: Hengst and Brand. Once hand picked, the grapes undergo gentle pressing followed by natural fermentation in 100 year old casks, where they also receive some lees ageing. Josmeyer’s wines are characterised by freshness, complexity and minerality, with each of the 5 terroirs contributing to different expressions of the grapes. These are true wines of character, and though their labels may suggest a certain playfulness, they are certainly serious wines.

We don't normally leave reviews BUT we couldn't not share how enjoyable we found this wine.
It had such depth, and the perfect balance of being on the sweeter side without being more desert based or loosing character to overpowering sweetness.
We would highly recommend and can't wait to enjoy it again ourselves. Thank you
