Wine Description:
Nestled on the slopes of Brand, Domaine Albert Boxler's 40-year-old vines thrive in the renowned Alsace grand cru site with granite soil. Jean Boxler crafts exceptional wines, and the 2020 vintage showcases heightened minerality, a tense nose, and enticing orange blossom notes. This grand cru, known for its approachability, boasts a palate bursting with fresh clementine juice and a luxurious weight. The Domaine, a father-and-son-owned artisanal winery in Niedermorschwihr, benefits from its elevated terroir and limited yields, ensuring top-tier quality across its 13-hectare estate with an annual production of 60,000 bottles.

  • Rich and complex aromas of peach, apricot, honey, and citrus

Wine Expert Note:

This Albert Boxler Riesling Alsace Grand Cru 'Brand' is a dry, mineral-driven wine with aromas of peach, green apple, and citrus zest. On the palate, this Riesling offers a refreshing acidity and a long, complex finish. With notes of white flowers and a hint of honey, it is a wonderful balance of ripe fruit and bright acidity. This is a classic Grand Cru from the region, with a great structure and complexity. Enjoy it now, or cellar it for up to a decade for a wonderfully aged, mellow expression.
