2015 Riesling Sommerberg Grand Cru Jeunes Vignes, Albert Boxler

The Sommerberg vineyard is for many the jewel in Jean’s crown. He lives among the vines here, both metaphorically and literally, so he understands the vineyard like no other. This young vine cuvée offers the perfect introduction to it, but at a remarkably reasonable price.

2015 Riesling Sommerberg Grand Cru Jeunes Vignes, Albert Boxler
Albert Boxler

With vines in the key Grands Crus Sommerberg and Brand, it’s no wonder Boxler is one of the most respected names in Alsace. In the area since 1673, history and family are omnipresent here: incumbent Jean Boxler’s grandfather assumed responsibility after World War II, and his cousin designed the label that same year, in 1946. Based in Niedermorschwihr, Jean and his family vinify parcels within each cru separately, for precise, vintage-driven wines which age better than any.
