Boeckel 2012 Riesling Stein, "Clos Eugenie"
Boeckel own significant holdings in the Grand Cru vineyards of Zotzenberg and Wibelsberg, but it is this more
modest lieu-dit which is the jewel in their crown, consistently offering the grandest and finest Riesling of the
house, that is never released without several years of bottle age. In the great 2012 vintage, it offers everything
you could ask for : tenderness, power, discretion, beauty, balance.

Notes from the Producer: The Clos Eugénie is in the area known as “Stein”, situated on the southern border of Mittelbergheim. Facing full south, this terroir is dominated by limestone and is protected from the north winds by the village. Therefore, the soil, very dry, stores the heat of the day and radiates it back to the vines at night.
EUGENIE was our great grant mother
