Wineck-Schlossberg Alsace Grand Cru AOC Gewürztraminer 2020

A wine of gras, texture, perfume and complex interplay of fruit and spice. Grilled peach, poached pear, white cherry, rose petals, caraway, cloves, spice, stone. Considerable RS, has to be 40 g/l +, but its phenolic grip and weight balance it. Been enjoying it over 7 days, great with red curry, harrissa chicken and cous cous, and triple cream — 7 months ago

Alsace Grand Cru Mambourg Gewürztraminer 2018

Delicious. Musky, ripe, and stony on the nose. A bit more on the dry side than many Gewurzes these days, and all the better for it. Pillowy texture and a lot of fruit initially, but then turns a bit minerally on the finish. Soft acids, but enough when joined with the slight bitter note on the back half of the finish. Very nice rendition. — 2 months ago

Wineck-Schlossberg Grand Cru Riesling 2019

Domaine Jean-Marc Bernhard Alsace Grand Cru Riesling ‘Wineck-Schlossberg’ 2019: Light-bodied. Vibrant acidity. Refreshing taste. Classic Riesling nose with palate flavors of apple, apricot, lemon & minerals. Lovely off-dry finish. All in all, a clean & bright Alsace Riesling; very pleasant, very versatile, good value. Happy Saturday to all! Cheers🍷 — a year ago

Sommerberg Grand Cru Riesling 2017

This was slammin, wears the 9 g/l RS like a champ. Pleanty of plushy depth, brilliant acid, aromas for days. Almost hedonistic fruit but in balance, just a joy to have in the glass . — 7 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.
