Josmeyer Pinot Blanc Mise du Printemps 2015

Summer in a bottle

This Robert Park­er-reviewed white wine, with its beau­ti­ful pale-yel­low col­or and sum­mery tones, hails from Alsace in France.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

A dry, light to medi¬≠um bod¬≠ied white wine, the Jos¬≠mey¬≠er Pinot Blanc gives notes of apple, pear, and peach on the palate, with sub¬≠tle nuances of hon¬≠ey and cit¬≠rus. It gives off soft and flow¬≠ery aro¬≠mas, and is del¬≠i¬≠cate at first taste. It‚Äôs a per¬≠fect, refresh¬≠ing sum¬≠mer wine that is easy to drink. In Robert Parker‚Äôs Wine Advo¬≠cate, it‚Äôs been said to be an ‚Äč‚Äúopen-heart¬≠ed, love¬≠ly, fruity wine that is great fun to drink [‚Ķ].‚ÄĚ

PREPA­RA­TION AND PAIRINGS

This Alsace gem is a per¬≠fect ap√©ri¬≠tif; serve slight¬≠ly chilled to wel¬≠come in the start of sum¬≠mer. Pair it with some mild and soft cheese, like this Brie de Meaux, this √Čpoiss¬≠es from C√īte d‚ÄôOr, or this Hal¬≠lou¬≠mi from Cyprus.

The Jos¬≠mey¬≠er Pinot Blanc also works won¬≠der¬≠ful¬≠ly with rich fish dish¬≠es, like a grilled salmon dish with aspara¬≠gus. Or even an oil-based pas¬≠ta, like a shrimp scampi, or a scoglio.

ALL IN THE FAMILY

In 1854, restau¬≠rant own¬≠er, gourmet, and ‚Äč‚Äúcourtier en vins (wine bro¬≠ker),‚ÄĚ Aloyse Mey¬≠er decid¬≠ed to put more focus on wine, and thus, this Alsace brand was born.

His grand¬≠son, Hubert, became an excel¬≠lent wine¬≠mak¬≠er, and launched the export mar¬≠ket, also sup¬≠ply¬≠ing the Navy. He was also respon¬≠si¬≠ble for adding ‚Äč‚ÄúJOS‚ÄĚ to the brand name, in hon¬≠or of Joseph, his father, whom he succeeded.

His son, Jean, on the oth­er hand, brought about moder­ni­ty and ele­vat­ed Jos­mey­er to elite sta­tus in Alsace. His daugh­ters, Isabelle and Celine, now helm the renowned brand.
