Made from young vines of a floral and elegant grand cru, this Riesling is the cousin of another wine, the Sommerberg grand cru. More info
This Riesling cuvée is made exclusively from young vines of Sommerberg grand cru, with which it clearly shares its origins through its floral nature, its natural elegance and its finesse, as well as its appetising length. Grown organically with the utmost care and effort, this Jean Boxler plot turns out to be the deepest, most complex and delicate of what Riesling can give. One of Alsace’s indispensable wines.
An emblematic domain of the Alsace region, Albert Boxler comprises 19 hectares of which half are classed Grand Cru. Founded towards the end of the 1940s, the domain favours clean and careful growing. In any case, the vines planted on steep terrain cannot be reached by machines. The treatments used are organic and the yields are masterful. In the cellar, indigenous yeasts carry out their work, and the wines are matured in old barrels in order to avoid a flavour that is marked by wood, and stirring is banned. The current owner, Jean Boxler, seeks before all else to highlight the particularities of the grape varieties and the terroirs through fine, taut and crystalline wines. This talent is particularly embodied in the careful work of Jean Boxler, who sees wine as a space of freedom and expression.
