Domaine Albert Boxler
Riesling Grand Cru Sommerberg 2017
The “regular” Boxler Riesling Sommerberg originates in upper-elevation parcels just northeast of the village of Niedermorschwihr. Whilst tightly woven, secretive and dense in its infancy, it has truly blossomed with now 5 years of bottle age. It is pure and flinty on the piquant, spicy/herbal, stone fruity and floral nose. This is the pure expression of granite in Riesling! The palate is awesome. It is intense, textured and juicy, nicely concentrated and ripe, with a touch of sweetness but gorgeous finesse, vitality and piquancy. There is also great delineation and a mineral backbone to add levity. Stone fruits, some pineappley tropical notes and honeysuckle really sing on the palate, with a backing of spice to round out the picture. The finish is pure and long, with gentle salty notes, and it develops a gorgeous juiciness which seems to rise to crescendo, and leaves you with beautiful positive flavours, long after the glass is finished.
