Albert Boxler Alsace Gewurztraminer '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 2016 Grand Cru Gewurztraminer is wildly aromatic, showing flavors of melon, peach, petrol, and honey. Insanely food-friendly and textured, with a lengthy finish.
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.
