2017 Pinot Noir “S”

Albert Boxler

Before opening this bottle, and confident that it would pleasantly surprise, I asked my Burgundian husband what he’d expect from Alsatian Pinot Noir. “I wouldn’t expect it” was his candid answer. How Burgundian, right? But I couldn’t have said it better myself. Boxler’s Pinot Noir S—the “S” stands for grand cru Sommerberg—is anything but expected. Grown on granite soils that retain even less water than their limestone-rooted counterparts, the berries tend to be small and concentrated, ensuring certain robustness. Subtle smoky aromas lead to an ultra-ripe mouthful of black cherry flavors and a fresh, clean acidity that makes for a long, long finish. A wine with intense character and a dancer’s grace. Tasting is believing.

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.

Great winemakers, great terroirs, there is never any hurry. And I no longer buy into this idea of “peak” maturity. Great winemakers, great terroirs, their wines offer different pleasures at different ages.
