2016 Crémant d’Alsace Brut

Albert Boxler

Jean Boxler’s expert touch extends from the epic, long-lived grand cru Riesling and Pinot Gris bottlings for which he is best known all the way down to his most humble cuvées. To call his Crémant humble is perhaps doing it a disservice, given that it could easily outclass all but the finest Champagnes, and yet the value here is such that it remains one of the domaine’s “entry-level” bottlings. Vintage 2016 is a bone-dry Pinot Auxerrois-based sparkler characterized by a delicate mousse and the purity of a mineral spring. Truly a gem—don’t miss it!

About Alsace

map of 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.

Let the brett nerds retire into protective bubbles, and whenever they thirst for wine it can be passed in to them through a sterile filter. Those of us on the outside can continue to enjoy complex, natural, living wines.
