Fleur de Lotus NV, biodynamic blend of aromatic grape varieties Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Muscat, it is perfect for Asian cuisine.  The grapes come from the flatter lands where the soils are mostly sand, shingle and silt with quite a high proportion of clay.  The terroir seems to have contributed to the delicious balance between richness and freshness in the wine.  The Fleur de Lotus, symbol of balance and harmony is a delicious aromatic wine.  It has wild honey, golden plums, citrus and baked apple.  It also has a spicy character balanced with fresh acidity and subtle pulpy texture.  For Gewurztraminer fanatics Fleur de Lotus is a must-try wine.  On the palate it tastes dry – the very low residual sugar of 3 g/l adds richness but not really sweetness.  They vinify exclusively in stainless steel so the wine retains the pure characteristics of the grapes and their freshness.

The Josmeyer labels are particularly distinctive. They are created in collaboration with different artists, they are designed to reflect the character of the wines they decorate.

It’s less common to find a producer that moves as comfortably with the ‘iconic’ label in conventional wine circles as it does in the Biodynamic world, but for Josmeyer, this is the case. Perhaps it’s the history associated with the estate; or perhaps it’s that insightfully and traditionally made wines from high quality grapes in the end, create few enemies. 

The estate was established in 1854 in the charming village of Wintzenheim and spans over 28 hectares of prime Alsatian terroir. The Meyer family has owned and operated the winery for five generations. In the 1990s, Jean Meyer made the bold decision to shift the estate to organic and biodynamic practices, which is credited with transforming it into one of the premier wineries in Alsace. After his passing, his daughters, Celine and Isabelle, took over the management of the winery and now produce the stunning wines made today. 

Wintzenheim's low annual rainfall, which is among the lowest in France, benefits the estate, which comprises five unique terroirs, two of which have achieved Grand Cru status: Hengst and Brand. At Josmeyer grapes are carefully handpicked and pressed before undergoing natural fermentation in 100-year-old casks, where they are aged on the lees. Josmeyer's wines are renowned for their freshness, complexity, and minerality, with each of the five terroirs contributing to the distinct expressions of the grape varieties.

    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
