Pale yellow with reflections of white gold. Notes of exotic fruits such as mango and pineapple and stone fruit complemented by a touch of anise, providing freshness. Beautiful concentration on the palate with some additional herbal notes and white pepper on the long finish.

Kessler vineyard has pink sandstone soil and faces east, south-east, which protects it from north winds and cold air streams brought by the valley of Guebwiller. Yields are 35 hl/ha. Kessler produces structured and elegant wines.

Now run by the 6th and 7th generations, Domaines Schlumberger was founded in 1810 by Nicolas Schlumberger, who established vineyards on the renowned slopes above the town of Guebwiller.  These vineyard sites have a history of viticulture, having been planted since 207AD. Through successive generations the holding has grown to be one of France’s largest and finest domaines.
