A fine Riesling, balanced, deep and thorough. Vinified by a master of Alsace Riesling, it can be enjoyed young as much as after a few years of aging. More info
Jean Boxler has succeeded in drawing from the granite terroir of Sommerberg a Riesling of rare elegance and exceptional depth. Made from Sommerberg’s oldest vines, this Riesling, with its charming aromas, has an appetising finesse that is out of the ordinary. Different from its neighbours in Alsace, the Sommerberg grand cru has the speciality of a granite soil, perfect for the development of true finesse and minerality. As much as this cuvée can be enjoyed young, it will also flourish and age remarkably, losing its lightly rugged character to later gain in depth and elegance.
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.
