Albert Boxler 'Sommerberg', Grand Cru, Riesling, Alsace France 2019
The Boxler family has been making dry & powerful styles of wine since 1673 & is still family run by Jean Boxler. And when we say powerful, we do not mean big and oaky, these wines demand the presence of the table. The Grand Cru bottlings are exquisite with 5-10 years of age. There is so much depth and energy to every sip. Boxler’s other Sommerberg bottlings, including Eckberg, come from pure granite in his home village of Niedermorschwihr. We highly recommend taking a few for your cellar.
Pairing: Choucroute Garnie, oysters, sushi
Grape: Riesling, 40 year old vines
