  • This Pinot Gris from the Sommerberg grand cru shares with the Riesling of the same terroir finesse, concentration, length and persistence to taste. With a more animated character than the domain’s Riesling, it conserves al the same a certain delicate reserve which, once aged, develops to have moe of an intense aromatic expression.

    An emblematic domain of the Alsace region, Albert Boxler comprises 14 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.
