2008 Boeckel Sylvaner Vieilles Vignes

SKU #1053788

In a more enlightened time, Boeckel would have been able to proudly proclaim the origin of this wine, which is the Grand Cru site of Zotzenberg, often considered the pre-eminent Sylvaner vineyard of Alsace. The self-appointed authorities, however, have decreed that Sylvaner is not a "noble" grape and cannot therefore be considered of Grand Cru status. You be the judges of that after tasting this singularly spicy and deep wine. The silver lining in this cloud of bureaucratic madness is that you can buy this authoritative and exciting wine for a great price.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Alsace

- A region and appellation in France that has been a part of both France and Germany throughout history. Geologically isolated from both countries, Alsace has also maintained much of its own culture and wine tradition, while also being influenced by the traditions of both countries. Alsatian wine is easily recognized by it traditional tall bottles. Alsatian wine makers produce a unique style of varietal wine, 90 percent of which is white.
