About

"Jean Boxler is quietly becoming one of the top names when it comes to serious red wine from Alsace. His 2016 Pinot Noir S is pure and aromatic on the fruity, spicy and floral nose that reflects the unique Sommerberg terroir beautifully and with delicate cherry flavors. Silky, fresh and crystalline on the palate, this is a straight, pure and linear Pinot with firm but fine and fresh tannins and a mouthwateringly salty finish. This gorgeous Pinot has never been pumped and was bottled unfiltered in December 2017. Tasted October 2018."

Product Description:

"Boxler’s Pinot Noir “S” is from the grand cru Sommerberg. Alsatians can produce grand cru Pinot Noir, but they aren’t allowed to label it as such... go figure. Here is a recipe for success: old vines, great terroir, minimalist winemaking, and aging in used Burgundian barrels. Jean Boxler is an ardent student of Burgundy and travels there regularly to taste and learn. He has applied this passion and his savoir faire working the noble granite slopes of his home turf to produce a truly grandiose Alsatian Pinot Noir." - Dixon Brooke
