2018 Riesling Grand Cru Brand, Albert Boxler
This is a pale, almost green gold in the glass. Brand always has a more approachable acidity than Sommerberg, and that is true again in 2018. This should drink well from early on, but it has the structure and poise for wonderful ageing. A rich, ripe lime character on the nose, with power, intensity, and astonishing length on the palate derived from the low yields produced by this granitic site - one of the finest in Alsace. Truly magnificent.
