2014 Pinot Noir “S”

Albert Boxler

2014 Pinot Noir “S” Albert Boxler - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Boxler’s Pinot Noir “S” is from the grand cru Sommerberg. Alsatians can produce grand cru Pinot Noir, but they aren’t allowed to label it as such... go figure. Here is a recipe for success: old vines, great terroir, minimalist winemaking, and aging in used Burgundian barrels. Jean Boxler is an ardent student of Burgundy and travels there regularly to taste and learn. He has applied this passion and his savoir faire working the noble granite slopes of his home turf to produce a truly grandiose Alsatian Pinot Noir. –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.

When buying red Burgundy, I think we should remember:

1. Big wines do not age better than light wine.
2. A so-called great vintage at the outset does not guarantee a great vintage for the duration.
3. A so-called off vintage at the outset does not mean the wines do not have a brilliant future ahead of them.
4. Red Burgundy should not taste like Guigal Côte-Rôtie, even if most wine writers wish it would.
5. Don’t follow leaders; watch yer parking meters.
