Albert Boxler Chasselas 2017
The Chasselas grape—a specialty of Switzerland, where it represents the most commonly planted white variety and is responsible for some truly spectacular wines—also has a small Alsatian stronghold, with roughly one hundred hectares to its name. Chez Boxler, it is fortunate enough to enjoy a privileged position on the granite slopes of Niedermorschwihr. Here, it becomes the reincarnation of a bubbling mountain spring, zipping across the palate with a refreshing tingle of spritz. Alsatian Chasselas—it’s shockingly thirst-quenching!
