Sylvaner Boxler 2006

Member Review by Philip James:

A well balanced, food friendly wine. The nose is a little subtle, but what's there is fresh and fruity and hints at the wines oily-ness. In the mouth it really shines, with good acidity which results in lime flavors. Its fruity and oily, with more acidity than many similar Riesling style wines. Very nice and well worth trying.

Albert Boxler is a 300-year-old family winery in the small town of Niedermorschwihr. The domaine is run by Jean Boxler, the grandson of Albert, who trained at one of France's top wine university, University of Montpellier. Jean made his first vintage in 1995. The domaine is small and comprised of Jean, his wife, his parents and three workers. The Boxlers live and work in a house and winery built in 1619; the vineyards include parts of the famous Grand Cru vineyards, Sommerberg and Brand. In fact, 80 percent of their land is Grand Cru classification. Jean's style is one of firm acidity. His favorite varietal is Riesling, followed by deep-textured, flavorful Pinot Gris. The grapes are grown organically. Boxler says his wines are "neither traditional nor modern. My style is natural -- nature makes the wine, not me. This is not to please the customer, but to work with the land and keep it healthy. This is the old traditional." Read less

    There's not much Sylvaner to be found around here so we're especially pleased to carry one from such a reputable producer as Boxler. This is a fresh white wine that's very fruit forward with aromas of limes, white flowers and fresh mint leaf.
