Grand Cru Kessler
To the north of Guebwiller, at an altitude of 300 to 390 m, the vineyards on the eastern side of the hill of Unterlinger are on a relatively steep and consistent slope of 28.5 hectares. As it name suggests at the heart of the Kessler there is a small south-east facing valley which shelters it from the northern winds and the currents of cold air brought by the Guebwiller valley.
The soil largely sits on a Bundstandstein Vosgian sandstone substrate which gives the sandy-clay its reddish colour. At the foot of the hill a linear chalk Muschelkalk outcrop covers sandstone colluviums and produces more clay like, compacted and red soils, without noticeably changing the homogeneity of the lieu-dit.
The nature of the soil is ideal for growing Riesling which develops in acidity and mineral sophistication.

Riesling Grand Cru Kessler 2004
After admiring its brilliant golden yellow colour, you will appreciate its very mineral, slightly smoky nose, with lemon and buttery notes.
Its mouth, dry and lively in attack, continues with a series of aromas reminiscent of resin, flint but also has a hint of lemon. The finish ends with very mineral aromas, slightly toasted. The length in the mouth is impressive.
