2019 Riesling Grand Cru Brand, Albert Boxler
Brand is one of the great Alsace grand cru sites. In Jean Boxler’s hand, this famous granite site does not disappoint. Compared to its cellar neighbours, it is usually the most forward and approachable of the Boxler grands crus. In 2019 it is more aromatic and expressive than the Sommerberg cuvées are early on, and it also feels a little weightier, but still has this penetrating, zippy line of acidity that gives the finish a long, sustained drive. It feels silky and bright, balanced and with vibrant grapefruit and bitter orange flavours. It is utterly delicious.
