Albert Boxler Alsace Riesling 'Brand Grand Cru' 2016
The Boxler family’s Alsatian roots date back to 1673, producing some of the region’s most serious white wines. Located in the Haut-Rhin, the estate’s vineyards create soil-specific bottles based on distinct single-vineyard sites, vinified and aged in old foudres. This Grand Cru Riesling is bone dry, showing powerful structure, with flavors of peach, lime, and petrol. Truckloads of acidity give way to a long, vibrant finish.
A versatile contender for ‘Greatest White Wine Grape in the World’ honors this German icon is not only insistently aromatic and mineral-rich but thrillingly acidic even at “sweet” ripeness levels.More wines with this grape
