Meyer-Fonne Pinot Blanc 2008 in the Sunday Business Post

Domaine Meyer-Fonne, Vieilles Vignes, AC Alsace Pinot Blanc 2008, €14.95 from Le Caveau, Market Yard, Kilkenny; Fallon & Byrne, Exchequer Street, Dublin 2; and with nationwide delivery at www.lecaveau.ie (90) When looking for better priced wines, keeping an eye on special offers is an important skill, but it is also key not to forget that there are areas of the wine world where there are brilliant winemakers, great vineyards and centuries of tradition, but also very low consumer demand. This is where the true wine bargains are to be had – places like Alsace, Cahors and Provence in France, almost all of Austria, Germany, many smaller Argentine estates, and Italy beyond Tuscany, Piedmont and Veneto. This delight is from Alsace. It is a lavish, full-bodied white with rounded honey flavours over hints of apricot, touches of lemon and a fine, medium length, clean finish. Often paired with fish but just as delicious with stuffed pork. Tomas Clancy, Sunday Business Post, 16th August 2009
