Boxler Cremant d'Alsace Exta Brut 2004
Domaine Albert Boxler's 26 vineyard-acres include parts of the famed Grands Crus Sommerberg and Brand. According to France magazine (Winter 2006/2007), Boxler . . . crafts some of Alsace's most exciting wines from grapes drawn entirely from its own . . . vineyards. This Cremand d'Alsace possesses a delicate nose of fresh flowers and bright fruit. On the palate, it has flavors of apple skin and brioche, with an elegant bubble and nutty aftertaste. Impeccably balanced.
