2018 Albert Boxler, Edelzwicker Reserve | Alsace, France

 

Varietal: Pinot Blanc, Pinot Auxerrois, Muscat + Riesling

Vineyard Management: Practicing Organic

Winemaking: Native yeast, old foudre are used for both fermentation and aging, unfined

Vegan: Yes

Typicity: Typical, and one of the best Edelzwicker currently available. Jean Boxler is making benchmark reference wines for classic Alsace.

Bio: Jean Boxler is renowned for his transcendent Alsatian Riesling, Pinot Blanc and truly life-changing Gewurztraminer. However, this is the only blend he bottles; all other 30+ bottlings are single varietal. This wine is the Boxler estate at its most convivial, opting for a warm embrace rather than the stoic stance of his other cuveés. Grand cru Riesling and Pinot Gris often find their way into this bottling that’s usually centered around Pinot Blanc or Auxerrois. All of his wines are organic and native ferment with no fining.  

Since this has been in bottle for a little while, orchard fruit aromatics give way to flavors of marcona almonds and dried apricot.
