2018 Riesling Sommerberg Grand Cru Jeunes Vignes, Albert Boxler

From the "young vines" in this astounding grand cru, In fact, the vines are 35 years old, but that still counts as young here. Fresh and lightly tropical notes of pineapple, lime, and salt. There is a really fine acidity here that freshens up the palate. This has a very pretty frame, and considerable length.

2018 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.
