Domaine Albert Boxler
Gewurztraminer Reserve 2017
Boxlers generic Gewurztaminer ‘Reserve’ is from 40–65 year old vines, taken from varying plots on his limestone dominant lieux-dits: Heimbourg and Pfoeller, just outside of Niedermorschwihr. The terroir from these plots tends to produce a slightly more elegant expression of the variety, compared with the bigger, broader, more intense and age-worthy expression that comes from the ‘Brand’ grand cru. This cuvée has a beautifully pure and elegant bouquet offering clear aromas of rose, litchi, honeyed tropical fruits, sweet spices and Turkish Delight. Wonderfully pure and expressive on the palate, with delicious, ripe litchi styled fruit and subtle notes of ginger, spice and smoke. Whilst maintaining the typicity of a Gewurztraminer, with opulence, spice, ample richness and gentle smoke, the palate is seemingly not at all heavy. Even clocking in with 35 grams of residual sugar, it is never cloying, it is pure, vibrant and elegant, and again with a length that goes on for days, as do all of Jean’s stunning wines. Wonderful with Thai curry or Cantonese style cuisine, meat dishes accompanied by cream sauces and mushrooms and perfectly partnered with strong cheese.
