The Michel Fonne vineyards account for a total of 15 hectares and are planted with all of the seven Alsatian wine grape varietals. In 1989 Michel returned in Alsace, after an apprenticeship in California, to assume management of the Barth René vineyards and winery from his retiring uncle, René Barth. More than 80% of the production are exported all over the world.
Tasting notes:
This Pinot Gris develops distinctive smoky notes : aromas of forest floor, burnt vine shoots, mushrooms, moss, dried fruits, apricot, honey, beeswax and gingerbread. Given its inherent discretion, this wine benefits from decanting a few minutes before being served, in order for its complexity to be fully appreciated. In the mouth, this noble wine offers great substance, admirable, lively roundness and freshness.
