Albert Boxler Alsace Pinot Gris '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. This Grand Cru Pinot Gris is insanely textured, showing notes of golden plums, wet stones, and smoke, giving way to a lush, grippy finish, with a salty, slightly sweet-laced finish, although the wine is dry.
Nominally French appellation in and around Strasbourg, where the Rhine River forms the border with onetime-annexer Germany. Mostly aromatic whites from the cool foothills of the Vosges Mountains.
