2011 Riesling Grand Cru “Sommerberg” VT

Albert Boxler

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

About Alsace

Tragically, Alsace might be the most misunderstood wine region of France. In spite of its long history of viticulture and tremendous diversity of pedigreed terroirs, a past fraught with marketing mishaps has left consumers baffled as to what exactly to expect inside one of these mysterious tall, thin bottles.

The good news, on the other hand, is that a new wave of quality-oriented growers is working hard to put Alsace in its rightful place as one of the world’s most fascinating sources of fine white wine. By embracing tradition, respecting terroir, and making a concerted effort to better communicate the countless virtues their wines have to offer, they have succeeded in putting Alsace back on the map.

Crafted from a number of grape varieties and beautifully interpreting the region’s mosaic of soil types, our Alsace imports are by and large dry whites offering exceptional versatility at table. While each of these selections is ready to be uncorked tonight, the finest among them are also capable of maturing for many, many years in a cool cellar. Expect kaleidoscopic aromatics, lively acidities, and loads of terroir transparency in these skillfully crafted masterpieces. Enjoy a foray into the thrilling world of the world’s most underrated wine region, and certainly do not hesitate to contact our sales staff with any questions as you take off on this mouth-watering adventure.
