2019 Gewürztraminer Grand Cru Brand, Albert Boxler

This 2019 shows the typical class and restraint we’ve come to admire in the cuvée. Precise, aromatically sophisticated, spiced and enticing, it is not overblown or cloying. The palate has signature Boxler texture: silky, supple persistence. It is delicious already but will surely transcend to the realms of the exquisit with some age. The affinity between the granite-soiled Brand vineyard and the Gewurztraminer variety is obvious, and it’s no surprise that a third of the grand cru is planted with this variety - a far higher proportion than it holds in the wider appellation.

2019 Gewürztraminer 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.
