    Cuvée presentation

    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.

    Information about domain Albert Boxler

    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. It is therefore as an artist that he produces his lingering wines, possessing a noble texture and great delicacy.
