Alsace’s Noblest Grape

by Chris Santini

2016 Riesling “Réserve”

Albert Boxler   France   |   Alsace   |  Alsace

$60.00

Shipping Included with Purchase of 2 bottles

It’s a good thing for us that Alsace isn’t part of Burgundy. What we have here—a wine from one of the absolute top estates in the entire region, all from declassified fruit from one of the absolute top grand cru sites in the entire region, all from the region’s most noble grape—would simply be impossible to come by in a Burgundian context. Imagine declassified Chardonnay from Corton-Charlemagne made by one of the greats from Meursault . . . the wine would never see the pages of our newsletter! And I shudder to think of the price. If the collectors aren’t chasing after Alsace, I say let them drink Burgundy and leave more Boxler for the rest of us. This is real-deal Riesling here, with the full aromatic intensity and opulent yet dry structure well beyond what one wishes for when reaching for a Riesling.

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.

Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
