2015 Pinot Gris Grand Cru Kessler, Domaine Schlumberger, Alsace
A lemon yellow colour with a nose of honey and yellow fruits, alongside a smoky note with a hint of liquorice. The palate is dense and fleshy with quince, honey and white flowers with a lovely fresh sweetness. Finishes with super length and richness.
With a single holding of more than 300 acres in Guebwiller, Domaines Schlumberger is the largest Grands Crus producer in Alsace. All Schlumberger wines are estate-grown. Because of the aridity and steepness of the domains, the yields are about 50 percent of the average for the appellation of Alsace. The resulting grapes are very high quality and have exceptional flavour concentration. For over 200 years the Schlumberger family has devoted themselves to farming the vineyards with passion, dedication and respect to the environment.
