    Pinot Gris Grand Cru Sommerberg Wiptal 2015, Albert Boxler

    100 % Pinot Gris fra Grand Cru marken Sommerberg - ca 20 år gamle stokke. Plottet, der kaldes Wiptal, er højt beliggende og meget stejlt Vinificeret naturligt og lagret på store, let brugte fade.

    Intens og koncentreret, men med mere mineralitet og nerve end Boxlers øvrige Pinot Gris'er.

    Drik den til rig mad  - modne oste eller fjerkræ med fyldig sauce. Prøv den til røget laks fra Letz.

    95 p. Wine Advocate

    The 2015 Pinot Gris Grand Cru Sommerberg Wibtal opens with a super-ripe but fine, precise and fresh nose with a touch of noblesse and bacon due to the newer 1600-liter oak foudre where it was fermented. Rich, intense and juicy, this is a round, full-bodied, finely structured and elegant Pinot with a long and stimulatingly salty finish. Quite powerful on the mid-palate, but the finish is finessed, vital and salty, full of potential. - Stephan Reinhardt

    95 p. Vinous

    Luminous yellow. Lemon verbena, lemongrass, varnish and violet on the very floral, refined nose; apple and caramel pear tart emerge with aeration. Then penetrating and very pretty; tastes very much like a VT in style, but the flavors (which are similar to the aromas) run classically dry. In fact, this seemed to me as if there were some noble rot present, but Boxler told me that it’s just the way the grapes taste. Very beautiful wine that tastes long, dry and multilayered. There are different spellings of Wibtal, including Wiptal, Wipthal and Wibthal, but Boxler likes the one I report here. The Wibtal is located right next to the Eckberg at more or less the same altitude, and you can tell that these two Boxler wines, even though they are made with different grape varieties and origins (Riesling in the case of the Eckberg and Pinot Gris for the Wibtal), have the same structure and profile and underlying mineral stoniness. Very impressive Pinot Gris. - Ian D'Agata
