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."
