Domaine ALBERT BOXLER Pinot Gris Grand Cru "Sommerberg - W" 2017
Wine Region: Alsace - France
Grape: Pinot Gris
Tasting notes: "Only slightly sweet, the 2017 Pinot Gris Grand Cru Sommerberg Wiptal is flinty on the nose and very fine and elegant on the palate. Structured by fine tannins and lingering salinity, this 2017 Sommerberg W (as it is named in Europe) develops a long and intense finish. It should be a perfect match with foie gras." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
About the Winery: This 13-hectare family estate, existing since 1673, now managed with talent by Jean Boxler (grandson of Albert) and his wife Sylvie, is one of the largest Alsatian houses. It gives all its nobility to the Sommerberg Grand Cru, a granite circus whose very steep hillside makes the work particularly difficult.
