Domaines Schlumberger Kessler Grand Cru Riesling
The Kessler grows on a sandstone soil and displays in its centre a valley that is globally facing east, south-east, which protects it from north winds and cold air streams brought by the valley of Guebwiller. As a natural extension of the Grand Cru Kitterlé, its subsoils are reddish over Vosgean sandstone bedrock. At its base, an outcrop of limestone results in clay soils. Whole grape pressing, static racking. Fermentation in thermo-controlled tuns for 1 to 4 months. Ageing on fine lees for 8 months.
Lemon yellow in colour. Citrus, lime and ginger on the nose with hints of white flowers. With airing white pepper and fennel appear. Lively on the palate with light sparkling note. More citrus and lime, vegetal, minerality, and a touch of smoke. Good finish with clean acidity. Still young, worth putting away for a few years. Serve with goats cheese, seafood or fish at about 12 C.
