Lean and tight, minerally, petrol, on night 1. The fruit came out on night 2 and was delicious. I rarely have wines last til the next day. Glad this did. — 5 months ago

Riesling Sommerberg Jeunes Vignes 2014

One of the most respected names in Alsace, Albert Boxler holds a total of 14 hectares in and around Niedermorschwihr, approximately half of them in the Brand and Sommerberg grand crus. Within the Sommerberg, they vinify each of their parcels separately and produce multiple Riesling bottlings from different lieux-dits, discreetly indicated with capitals on their labels.

The Sommerberg D comes from a southeast-facing plot with 70+ year old vines on granite soils at altitude of about 250-290 meters (820-950 ft) in the Dudenstein section. The Sommerberg E comes from a very steep and stony plot with 45+ year-old vines higher up in the hill at about 400m (1,300ft) in the Eckberg section. The “regular” Sommerberg is sourced from two different plots with 40+ year-old vines at an elevation of 320-330 meters (1,000 ft). Additionally they produce a JV Jeunes Vignes (aka Réserve in the US, pictured here) with the youngest vines or declassified fruit from these sites as well as their late harvest/Vendange Tardive VT and Sélection de Grains Nobles S.G.N. depending on the year.

Sommerberg Grand Cru Riesling 2017


Clear, medium gold with nice with nice unncharacteristic legs given away high alcohol content for a Riesling. Nose of medium+ intensity, primary, developing. Honeysuckle, peach and hint of melon on the nose. Off dry palate with high acidity offsetting the medium+ body. Leads to a medium+ finish. Juicy, concentrated and flavorful now but should develop some interesting secondary notes adding to complexity down the line. — 6 months ago

Sommerberg Granite Alsace Riesling

Beautiful, well-made Alsatian Grand Cru Riesling from the granite soils of the Sommerberg vineyard. Apples, lime, and mineral on the nose. Palate is rich but bone dry with apples, lime, and strong minerality. Finish is long and memorable. Not as complex as some Alsatian Grand Crus, but a great wine nonetheless. Will get even better with age. Great wine, great value, perfectly balanced. 2016 vintage on Aug 8, 2018. — 3 years ago
