The tasting

Utopiste signed Kumpf and Meyer is an orange wine from Alsace (France) made from Gewurztraminer on a clay-limestone soil on the hillsides of Rosheim and Molsheim.

Complex, there is a very good balance between its amplitude, its freshness and its delicacy. The tannins are quite delicate and melt perfectly into the rest of the mouth. There are notes of quince paste, plum, dried rose, cinnamon, orange zest, lychee, tea, rhubarb… A whole sensory journey!

Kumpf and Meyer: Alsace Natural Wines at the Best Price

Son and daughter of winegrowers, Sophie Kumpf and Philippe Meyer settled in Rosheim (Alsace) in 1997. They quite naturally named their estate Kumpf & Meyer. The years pass, Philippe wants to change… Sophie, a little carefree as she says herself, continues to take care of the vineyard alone. Then in 2010, Julien Albertus, trained at Zusslin’s estate, took over the vines. As soon as he arrived, overflowing with ideas, energy and convictions, he breathed new life into the estate and wines. Stressed at first, he learned over time to let go…

Kumpf & Meyer Estate

When Julien Albertus arrives, he converts the vines of Kumpf Meyer estate, plunging their roots into clay-limestone soil, into organic farming. This implies, for him, no fertilizer of mineral origin or phytosanitary products derived from chemistry, natural grassing, very little or no ploughing. Julien will also plant plants that have agronomic interests (legumes, cereals, crucifers, etc.) in order to bring some ecological diversity.

Julien Albertus wines

Then in a logical continuation, Julien Albertus’ wines are vinified in the most natural way possible by starting the experiment “without sulfites” in 2012 on the Pinots Noirs.. In 2016, all the cuvées will no longer have any input. In our opinion, the estate offers real mastered terroirs wines at a very good price/pleasure ratio. It’s hard to find better in the region… The 15 hectares make it possible to offer a wide range of wines: Pet’nat, skin contact, tense, round, singular, easy going…
