Albert Boxler Riesling Grand Cru Brand, Alsace France 2015

The Boxler family has been making wine since 1673 & is still family run by Jean Boxler.  This historic property is still produces top notch wine.  The 2015 Brand Riesling is dry & intense.  The aromatic intensity of flint, orange peal, and stone fruit will lead you to believe that palate is richer than it is.  The acid is persistent followed by a saline finish.  

Grape: Riesling 

Soil: Granite 

viticulture: Organic 

Notes on the vintage from Vinous Media:

In 2015 Boxler made only one Brand Riesling (he made no Kirchberg in 2015, and so this wine is made with the grapes of the Kirchberg, Kirchthal and Steinglitz lieux-dits). The Kirchberg is always the last part of the Brand to be harvested by Boxler, as its grapes are usually characterized by noteworthy acidity and freshness levels; in warm 2015, he found it was necessary to help the wines made with the grapes from the plots in the Kirchthal and Steinglitz, and he did not want to risk making a slightly flat wine. There is no doubt that the finished wine’s balance is much better with the added Kirchberg component .
