2011 Riesling <i>Grand Cru</i> “Sommerberg” VT Albert Boxler - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


One way I love to serve late-harvest Rieslings is to start an evening, and Boxler’s are perfectly apt to the task as the freshest, purest, most electric vendanges tardives I have ever tasted. This 2011 Sommerberg is truly a masterpiece. Its explosiveness, poise and balance, never-ending length, and complexity of flavor should not have to compete with food or any other distraction. Late-harvest wines of this quality in Alsace take incredible skill to make. This is a supremely beautiful example of a harmonious, highly successful partnership between man and nature.–Dixon Brooke
