Albert Boxler Pinot Gris GC (750ml)
Boxler is a small family domaine that farms and crafts their wines according to traditional techniques that have been passed down through the generations. The family has the good fortune of owning vineyards in some of the most prestigious sites in Alsace. According to the American wine importer Kermit Lynch, “Tasting through the entire range of Boxler’s wines is ample proof of the fact that Alsace, along with Burgundy, is the source of the world’s most complex, exciting white wines, and will probably always be.” While Boxler is not certified organic, they practice organic farming and have not used fertilizers or herbicides since 2003.
The grapes are hand harvested, pressed and the juice cold settles before natural fermentation with ambient yeasts in foudres (older large oak barrels). The wine is bottled unfiltered and unfined.
