2018 Pinot Gris Grand Cru Brand, Albert Boxler

Boxler's Pinot Gris Brand is, in our opinion, the greatest expression of the grape in the world. In 2018 it is rich and powerful, with a little residual sugar and a full bodied structure. The golden colour indicates a ripe style, and the aromas are bursting with sweet peaches, almonds and spiced ginger. This is a wine that demands food, just so as to have something to match its staggering power and length. Certainly not a wine for the faint hearted, but for those who are willing to wait, this might just end up being the most rewarding wine in your cellar.

2018 Pinot Gris Grand Cru Brand, 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.
