2019 Pinot Gris, Albert Boxler

This variety is often unfairly dismissed, particularly in its Italian guise. But Pinot Gris from Alsace is quite another kettle of fish, and in Jean Boxler’s hands, well worth a closer look. This is a brilliant example from the brightly-fruited and energetic 2019 vintage. It has a lightly petrol-like note on the nose, and a svelte and finely weighted body that feels in no way heavy but means it has great presence. Try this with Thai flavours and revel in its versatility.

2019 Pinot Gris, 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.
