Vintage Albert Boxler Sommerberg Riesling Grand Cru 2004
Domaine Albert Boxler, a producer in Alsace with a history dating back to 17th century. Today, Jean Boxler is practising organic viticulture and minimal intervention in the cellar to produce wines which inspire a cult-like following. Jean meticulously divides the individual terroirs within Sommerberg and Brand into smaller parcels, each marked with a single letter on the labels. These parcels yield some of the most concentrated and age-worthy Rieslings in the region, making Domaine Albert Boxler a true treasure for wine enthusiasts.
The 2004 Sommerberg Riesling is layered with aromas of peaches and apricots, buttercream and vanilla. On the palate, the wine offers notes of concentrated stone fruit, green kernels and a touch of vanilla. The creamy and oily texture is supported by the underlying stony mineral, with a persistent finishing. If you are getting a bottle or two, enjoy the wine as it is developing and keep some for ageing in the cellar.
