2015 Albert Boxler Riesling Reserve
September 26, 2018

 

Albert Boxler ranks with Trimbach, Weinbach and Zind Humbrecht as one of the top producers in Alsace. Jean Boxler's wines are more rich and deep than flashy, exciting for their depth and longevity. They are also quite expensive and sought after, better known in Europe than here.

We got a small quantity of his more forward 2015 reserve or young vines Riesling which we can offer at just a bit over half its original price.

"offers a clear and elegant, more fruity than mineral, nose with a delicate Riesling and stone fruit aroma. The wine is quite intense and aromatic on the palate, provided with good freshness and piquancy, with the finish displaying stimulating salinity. Bottled with eight or nine grams of residual sugar." Stephen Reinhardt, Wine Advocate 

"Starts with a saline note in the mouth, but then the mouth is astonishingly intense for young vines, for in this vintage several parcels were declassified which makes it generously thicker. The most accessible of all the [Boxler] rieslings." Bettane & Desseauve

 

2015 Albert Boxler Riesling Reserve was $57 Now 35; Mixed Case, 31.5; Case, 29.75
