2010 Pinot Blanc from Albert Boxler Niedermorschwihr has a dense, yellow-green color. The aroma reminds of creamy milk chocolate, almonds, ripe yellow apple, mineral and nectarine. The taste is compact, tight and stringent with lots of lovely fruit, a sandy mouthfeel and absolutely perfect balance, despite the soaring acids. Boxler makes incredibly good wines! Price: € 10.

Hello, great blog and website you have! I am a fellow wine blogger from Finland who enjoys driving through Sweden and Denmark to European wine regions.
I am going to Alsace for second time in August and will be staying in Kaysersberg. Any recommendations for a restaurant there or nearby?
I'm also having a really hard time trying to decide which producers to visit. Any suggestions for producers with best price/quality ratio? Right now I'm thinking Paul Blanck and Dirler-Cadé but purely qualitywise really interested in Weinbach and Albert Boxler.
It is amust to visit taverna Alsacienne in Ingersheim. Otherwise Flamme & Co in Kaysersberg is great fun. Or, why not Au Bon Coin in nearby Sigolsheim? If you order my book you will get more suggestions. (You get it to Finland in 2 days)
Regarding producers there are so many! Within 5 km fråm Kaysersberg you have Stirn, Bernhard, Meyer-Fonné, Simonis and Schaetzel. At Blanck you should not neglect the 2010 Auxerrois.
Thanks for your response!
I would love to buy your book but my Swedish is just horrible. It hasn't been translated to English, has it?
The amount of quality producers really is just breathtaking so I guess I just have to start (or continue, already visited Bott-Geyl in 2012) somewhere. Thanks for all the tips!
Oh, just noticed that there is in fact an English version. Well then, I'm a customer.
