    Riesling Grand Cru Sommerberg 2016, Albert Boxler

    Fra forholdsvist højt beliggende dele af Grand Cru Sommerberg. Lavet på 100 % Riesling, dyrket økologisk men ikke certificeret. Vinificeret naturligt, dvs uden tilsætning af gær. Lagret sur lie i 11 måneder på store, gamle fade uden omstikning.

    Intens duft med indslag af lime, fersken og lilje. Smagen er præcis med høj syre og god mineralitet balanceret af en flot frugt og smagsintensitet.

    En vin, der klarer stort set alt mad. Vil man yde den retfærdighed bør man dog servere den til de lidt dyrere ting fra fiskehandleren; hummer, jomfruhummer, kammusling, pighvar, rødtunge eller havtaske - gerne med en lidt syrlig sauce som beurre blanc eller sauce nage.
    Også fin til alt, hvor man vil servere choucrute til - uanset om det er stegt multe med enebærsauce eller det er den helt store gang Choucrute Imperiale med 7 slags kød.

    95 p. The Wine Advocate

    Boxler's 2015 Riesling Grand Cru Sommerberg opens with the discreet charm and aristocratic distinction of a great wine. Very pure, clear, fine and elegant on the nose, with fine stony and herbal flavors but also ripe stone fruit and floral aromas, the 2015 tells the story of its origin in the glass in an excitingly subtle yet deep way. The palate is great! It is intense and juicy, nicely concentrated and ripe, with a touch of sweetness but gorgeous finesse, vitality and piquancy. The finish is pure and salty and develops a fascinating juiciness that explodes in the finish. This is not a wine for mouthfeel drinkers, but it is surely one of the finest, most delicate and balanced Rieslings you can find from this vintage. The combination of concentration, complexity, structure, minerality and sweetness (due to the low acidity, higher alcohol and extract) could hardly be better. - Stephan Reinhardt

    93 p. Vinous

    Bright straw. Open-knit, spicy aromas of tropical fruit and herbs are very granite-driven. Lemony and lively, featuring a slightly chewy quality to the licorice, mineral and stone fruit flavors. Closes long and tactile with lemony mineral bite. Lovely Sommerberg, made from Boxler’s two parcels of vines that never undergo water stress (and they didn’t in hot 2015 either), blessed as they are with deeper soil. This is more harmonious than Boxler’s 2014 Riesling Sommerberg and seems less sweet than that wine at the same stage of development. - Ian D'Agata

    19,5 p. Smag og Behag

    Fortryllende kombination af ren og spæd druesødme, klar og præcis druesmag og lang, velplaceret syre. Sommerberg, lidt vest for Colmar, er kendt for sin granitholdige jord og for lang holdbarhed for de bedste Riesling’er. Boxlers 2015’er er en af dem, præget, men ikke domineret af sit mineralske ophav, suveræn i stil og smag, delikat og rank. Kombinationen af sødme og syre gør den også til en fremragende madvin – men også som aperitif eller hyggevin er den fremragende. - Henrik Oldenburg

    92 p. Wine Advocate (2013)

    From 40 years old vines (average) cultivated predominantly in the Wanne and a smaller percentage in the lower part of the Wiptal, the 2013 Riesling Grand Cru Sommerberg shows a distinctive and flinty nose of white fruits and lemon,s along with floral aromas and crushed granite rocks. Intense, lush, and fleshy but still very fine and precise in its crystalline articulation and finessefull vitality, this is a very elegant, vital and complex Riesling with a long, aromatic and tension-filled finish.

    90 + p. Vinous (2013)

    Pale straw. Lemony acidity and white flowers on the nose and palate. Offers plenty of juicy detail and sneaky concentration, with the mineral and orchard fruit nuances lingering on the crisp palate. Made with grapes grown in two plots that are not especially close to each other, but are at the same altitude and have deeper soil than other parcels in the Sommerberg owned by Boxler. As the grapevines behave differently in this particular Sommerberg micro-terroir (for example, the vines have much greater resistance to dry weather conditions), Boxler prefers to bottle the wine from these grapes separately.
