Fromenteau Pinot Gris Josmeyer, biodynamic wine, made from 40 year old vines, dry, nutty, full, with hints of ripe pear and honey on the nose.  A superb example of this grape variety by Josmeyer, our favourite Alsace producers. The nose of rich pear and the lemony palate are driven forward by the purity of the fruit.  There is body and depth to the wine, ideal with Lobster.  But serve it chilled with any seafood or white fish.

Ageing Potential A wine to drink in youth for its spring fresh charm, however it has the quality to mature nicely in bottle for up to 5 years.

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.
