(2019) Having trained in Burgundy and worked in California, Michel FonnÃ© took over his uncle RenÃ© Barthâ€™s estate in 1989. As is very common with Alsace Pinot Gris, thereâ€™s definitely some sweetness here, in a wine that is full-bodied and voluptuous, and the antitheses of more neutral Pinot Grigios. With a wisp of smoke and fat, beeswax and apricot fruit on the nose, the palate explodes with ripe stone fruit flavours, a limey acidity that is purposeful but not sharp, and the sweetness offsetting a touch of spice and plenty of powerful fruit intensity. A fine example of a style Alsace does so well. Watch the video
