From an outstanding 1810 Alsace estate, this is a remarkable Riesling Grand Cru. James Suckling awarded it 92 points. The fine Kessler vineyard has produced a masterpiece of dried orange peel, spice with tight, underscoring minerality. Very fine.

This fine estate was founded in 1810 by Nicolas Schlumberger, who planted vineyards on the slopes above the village of Guebwiller. Ever respectful of the past and mindful of those to come, the 6th and 7th generations now run the estate. Through these successive generations, Schlumberger has grown to be one of France's finest properties. It has extensive holdings – 180 hectares of vines, with an 80% share in three of Alsace's greatest Grand Cru sites – Kessler, Kitterlé and Saering. In recent years, they have converted to organic viticulture, with an eye to biodynamic practices too. Kessler Grand Cru is a well protected, steep, sunny slope, with pink sandstone soils. From a fine vintage, the wine is intense, ripe and finely poised.

"Dried citrus and spice character. Taut and tangy on the palate, this is zesty and mineral throughout" James Suckling
