2017 Riesling Sommerberg Grand Cru Jeunes Vignes, Albert Boxler
Sommerberg is the steep 19 hectare grand cru hillside that rises up behind the village of Niedermorschwihr, where the Boxler cellar is located. Indeed, Sommerberg is synonymous with Boxler: his is the most famous and celebrated iteration of the vineyard. The ‘young vines’ here are actually 35 years old, and produce a wine with a fresh, juicy tension. The 2017 has notes of lime blossom, sea breeze and fresh peaches on the nose, with taut freshness , and an energetic drive to a long and elegant finish.
