Wine Expert Note:

Albert Boxler's Pinot Gris Sommerberg from Alsace Grand Cru, France, is a captivating wine with a nose that unveils a symphony of aromas. The bouquet is an intricate dance of ripe orchard fruits like pear and peach, intertwined with floral notes of acacia and hints of honey. On the palate, this Pinot Gris showcases a beautiful balance between richness and freshness. The luscious texture carries flavors of apricot, quince, and a touch of exotic spices, leading to a long, mineral-driven finish. It's a wine that marries opulence with precision. Pair this Grand Cru with rich, creamy dishes such as foie gras or lobster thermidor to complement its texture and depth. While delightful in its youth, the Albert Boxler Pinot Gris Sommerberg has the potential for further complexity with cellaring; consider laying it down for 5-10 years to allow its flavors to evolve and mature.
