Bone dry, yet full, rich and nutty in character. The flavours don't jump out of the glass yet run deep in this complex white. Citrus, apple and mineral are the main flavour themes, with a superb cut and fine length.

Settled in Wintzenheim in Alsace, Domaine Josmeyer is an estate with a long family history. Founded in 1854 by Aloyse Meyer, a noted restaurateur and gourmet, the estate was rechristened in 1963 by Hubert Meyer, his grandson because numerous families named Meyer were making wines in the area. He added the beginning of his father’s name, Joseph, to their surname and thus created the Josmeyer brand. Since 1966, the 28-hectare estate has been managed by Jean along with his two daughters, Céline and Isabelle.
