  1. BOXLER 2017 RIESLING SOMMERBERG GRAND CRU

    Item #: i_345653
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    VINOUS 94+ POINTS - "Luminous straw-yellow. Lemon, minerals, lime and pomaceous orchard fruit, and actually not much of the spice typically associated with granite soils. Long and lively in the mouth, and boasting noteworthy clarity and cut thanks to juicy acidity that channels the flavor molecules directly onto the taste buds. More restrained than the Sommerberg, but also more refined, with sneaky concentration and depth. These vines were planted in the 1970s and are located higher up than Boxler’s two Sommerberg parcels where there is a warmer microclimate. The slightly tactile note on the finish had me thinking some cold-soaking had been done, but Boxler told me it was not so, as he prefers to press the grapes very slowly and that leads to wines with bigger extract and palate presence, accounting for the wine’s tactile sensation."

    James Suckling: 96

    JAMES SUCKLING 96 POINTS - "This has such attractive, fresh perfume with sweetly floral aromas, as well as sweetly fragrant and ripe lychees, peaches and roses. The palate is very attractive and succulent with such impressive concentration of lychees. Some honey and pastry, too. This is stunning. Full and gently sweet. Drink or hold."
