I was a little overwhelmed tasting this wine for the first time. That usually happens only with wines of a higher pedigree, but there I was, taken aback by the abundance of wildflowers and aromas of ripe summer peaches that were flowing my direction. And such a zing and crispness on the palate!
Perhaps I shouldn’t have been surprised, as Jean Boxler is an Alsatian master and his Edelzwicker—a blend of Riesling, Chasselas, Muscat, and Pinot Blanc—is primarily sourced from his grand cru holdings.
What lasts for me is the texture. Edelzwicker is supposed to be a simple white wine, yet this one has so much grip, length, and structure. My sense of being overwhelmed soon turned to awe—you’ll no doubt have a similar experience.
