2016 Albert Boxler Pinot Blanc, Alsace
“Youthful and elegant, this pinot blanc has enough herbal and lemon character to hold your attention. The crisp, long finish has some minerality that makes it a flexible food wine.” – James Suckling, 91 Points
Variety: Pinot Blanc
According to the Guide Parker 2013, Albert Boxler estate offers the consistency and quality that few estates in France can match. The praises, which are numerous, are even more deserving given the grandeur of the wines, which could only come from the vision and perseverance Boxler showed towards his very abrupt land and poor soils. Today, Jean Boxler, Albert’s grandson, and his wife Sylvie head the 13-hectare property.
The wines from Boxler shine due to their finesse, purity, complexity and … all the other things that characterize great wines. Even better, since Jean Boxler manages to obtain mature fruit in the cooler years as well as to maintain firm acidity the warmer vintages, a Boxler wine will never ever let you down.
