Albert Boxler


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."

  • Having been to Eleven Madison Park on several occasions, I never hesitate to ... the radar, I should add that Albert Boxler's 2008 Riesling Sommerberg Eckberg at $105 is another fabulous reason to go with Riesling here, though with so many unusual choices, you might be forgiven if you start with one or more unusual whites that are available.Co...

    Wine review by Pondman


  • Sylvaner Boxler 2006

    Snoothrank:

    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.

    45g residual sugar - not sure how you get to call it a 'dry white', for it is not. There's a rich, sweet, nose that exudes complexity. And, its sweet on the tongue too - beautiful, concentrated and intensely complex, a wine of real character and depth.

  • Albert Boxler Riesling Vielles Vignes 2005

    Snoothrank:

    The old vines make an early appearance. The nose is equally developed, with a pronounced intensity of apricot, bay leaf and plums. On the palate it is off-dry, with a noticeable alcohol level and a fairly full body. The acidity is crisp, keeping the wine from becoming too heavy. Perfectly balanced. A pronounced intensity of spiced fruit (baked a... Read More
