TASTING NOTES

"Boxler's 2015 Riesling Grand Cru Sommerberg opens with the discreet charm and aristocratic distinction of a great wine. Very pure, clear, fine and elegant on the nose, with fine stony and herbal flavors but also ripe stone fruit and floral aromas, the 2015 tells the story of its origin in the glass in an excitingly subtle yet deep way. The palate is great! It is intense and juicy, nicely concentrated and ripe, with a touch of sweetness but gorgeous finesse, vitality and piquancy. The finish is pure and salty and develops a fascinating juiciness that explodes in the finish. This is not a wine for mouthfeel drinkers, but it is surely one of the finest, most delicate and balanced Rieslings you can find from this vintage. The combination of concentration, complexity, structure, minerality and sweetness (due to the low acidity, higher alcohol and extract) could hardly be better."

"Bright straw. Open-knit, spicy aromas of tropical fruit and herbs are very granite-driven. Lemony and lively, featuring a slightly chewy quality to the licorice, mineral and stone fruit flavors. Closes long and tactile with lemony mineral bite. Lovely Sommerberg, made from Boxler’s two parcels of vines that never undergo water stress (and they didn’t in hot 2015 either), blessed as they are with deeper soil. This is more harmonious than Boxler’s 2014 Riesling Sommerberg and seems less sweet than that wine at the same stage of development." Ian D'Agata, Vinous.com
