    Riesling Grand Cru Sommerberg Dudenstein 2017, Albert Boxler

    Tør Riesling i topklasse.

    Riesling fra parcel på Sommerberg Grand Cru med ca 70 år gamle vinstokke. Jordbunden er granit over kalk, parcellen er beliggende 280-300 moh, stejl som en væg og med sydøst-orientering. Gæret naturligt og uden malolaktisk gæring - syren er simpelthen for høj til at den malolaktiske gæring kan gå i gang.

    Enorm intensitet i duften med tropisk frugt, pæresaft og citron/lime. Fyldig og kompleks smag med en forbløffende stor friskhed og kølighed. Godt syrebid i den fede frugt og uendelig eftersmag.

    Bør gemmes 5-10 år fra høståret og vil sandsynligvis kunne udvikle sig flot frem til midt i 2030'erne. Drik den til mad med smag - risotto med kantareller, stegt fisk med beurre blanc, braisserede svinekæber - klarer stort set alt i det salte køkken.

    97 p. Wine Advocate (årgang 2017)

    The 2017 Riesling Grand Cru Sommerberg Dudenstein is simply great on the nose, very pure, elegant and flinty, with notes of crushed stones and perfectly ripe and intense fruit. On the palate, the wine is silky textured, round and elegant, with great finesse and harmony. The finish is salty-piquant, very pure and stimulating. - Stephan Reinhardt

    Hvilken dansende lethed og intensitet på én gang: Sommerberg D (for Dudenstein) hører til de største vine i Alsace, og den forholdsvis lette og yderst elegante 2016 er ingen undtagelse med den krystalklare frugt, der er riesling i yderste potens. 95+ p. - Niels Lillelund

    96 p. Decanter (2015)

    Jean Boxler’s 2015 wines maintain his dauntingly high standards. The Sommerberg ‘D’, from a small parcel containing old vines planted after 1945, is a masterful wine of great intensity, complexity and energy: almost explosive in the mouth. It is both opulent and vivacious: a typically Alsatian combination, but rarely realised with the drama and clarity of expression that you find here. - Andrew Jefford

    96 p. Wine Advocate (2014)

    The 2014 Riesling Grand Cru Sommerberg Dudenstein (Sommerberg D in Europe) is from a lower (250-290 meters), southeast-facing plot with 70-year-old vines on granite over limestone (Muschelkalk) soils. It opens with a very clear, fresh and complex bouquet with smoky lemon and some richer herbal flavors. Full-bodied, round and elegant, this is a very intense and juicy, silky textured, almost sweet and well-structured Riesling; it seems to be a bit smoother than the pure granite selections of the cru. In fact, the combination of granite sandstone and limestone in the tiny plot is unique in Alsace. The finish is highly aromatic, lush and fruity but also mineral, and displays floral aromas in the long aftertaste. This wine should be kept for at least ten years but will still be great in 30 years.

    95 p. Vinous (2012)

    Bright straw. Very concentrated and complex aromas and flavors of green apple, pear nectar, minerals and vanilla show an almost austere quality thanks to the wine's zingy lemony acidity. Deeper and longer than the 2012 Sommerberg Eckberg, and in my view a perfect example of a wine made from grapes picked before the autumn rain. This is more concentrated but less ripe than Boxler’s other wines made with grapes picked later in the harvest but has impeccable balance and admirable thrust. The Dudenstein is always the first Sommerberg parcel to be harvested, and in 2012 the wine is an absolute knockout. - Ian D'Agata
