What a beauty! Intriguing nose of citrus, flowers, yellow fruit and beeswax. On the palate it is fresh, lively, balanced with the warmth of the alcohol. The beautiful minerality leaves a tingling sensation with bitter nuances for an extremely pleasant finish!more reviews

'A pure, finessed and very elegant Riesling' - Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate
Kessler hails from a sandstone terroir that benefits from the chill air of Guebwiller Valley. Here it offers an exceptional Riesling with fruity and smoky notes. A chiselled, generous wine of great purity, ideal with the most sophisticated dishes, such as lobster.

An enjoyable Riesling which was one of my first experiences with the style. Although I think I need to try more to fully appreciate it, I found this a good intro and offered a lot of complexity.

This quality Riesling is just beginning to balance and show its finesse. Already layered with notes of citrus, honey and some petrol, it will keep on maturing for several years.

The Riesling Grand Cru Kessler 2018 from Domaine Schlumberger is a fantastic wine. The nose is full of vibrant citrus and stone fruit aromas, with a hint of minerality. On the palate, the wine is perfectly balanced with a refreshing acidity that complements the rich, ripe fruit flavors.

Schlumberger is always a guarantee when it comes to wine quality, and this Riesling grand cru is no different. In the glass, typical scents of the variety with a remarkable elegance and persistence. Truly recommended!

The nose is not very pronounced, a distant and light note of petroleum, aromas of fresh fruit. On the palate I find great acidity (lemon juice level) and yet without being unpleasant, I suppose the roundness balances.
The acidity stays well on the palate.

I was not fully convinced. The nose hides a little, but it fits. In the mouth, I expected it to be more evolved and more persistent. A little unbalanced on acidity. Perhaps I was misled by the rating in the RVF guide? In any case, I would not buy it again

Citrus, white flowers, some stony notes, a hint of herbal infusion and a light hydrocarbon background are on the program. Some fresh bitters balance it elegantly. More tension would have taken it to the next level.

Tasted vintage after vintage, the Kessler never disappoints: a beautiful aromatic palette of white fruits and flowers, which on passing through the mouth gives way to a distinct minerality supported by the hydrocarbon trace typical of the variety. A very pleasant riesling with minimal residual sugar.

Despite being one of the largest producers (in terms of numbers), this grand cru is of great quality of extreme finesse with all the characteristics of the terroir from which it comes

Brilliant golden yellow. Elegant and fine nose immediately impresses with notes of citrus and dried flowers, then impresses with the broad aromatic potential of white flowers and sweet spices. In the mouth it presents itself with pure and intense aromas.

We have here a great Riesling. Very fragrant, not too acidic, good length on the palate. And above all, a lot of delicacy, nothing is excessive or overpowering. A good moment!

Schlumberger's white wines are as remarkable as ever. This Riesling is a worthy representative, and should be ordered without hesitation, it will delight every taste bud.

Lots of elegance for this Riesling, citrus fruit on the nose and palate, and above all lots of freshness. Try it with shellfish pasta.

A very aromatic Riesling, with slightly vegetal notes, apple, pear, citrus fruit and a slight oiliness that adds charm to this wine.

Classic Riesling.
A little young for an oil nose, but lovely citrus aromas.
Lime lingers on the palate. Good tension and minerality.
A good RQP!

The wines from the Schlumberger estate are really very good, with finesse and a fine range of aromas... There's that "petrol" aspect that is so characteristic of Riesling-type wines.

One of the great references of the appellation, this wine is a worthy representative of its terroir, with magnificent aromas and a price-pleasure ratio that leaves no room for doubt. Go for it

A wine full of lemon and clementine flavours with a hint of ginger. It also has a touch of smokiness, which must come from the terroir. The whole is rich and mineral, as it should be.

A lovely colour, we enjoyed it as an aperitif and throughout the meal (sauerkraut, of course), even with cheese such as Munster. Good value for money

Golden yellow, fruity and citrus notes overlaid by spicy and ginger aromas. A juicy wine with a perfect balance between alcohol content and acidity. It is a perfect expression of Grand Cruz Kessler.

Straw-yellow colour with bright highlights. Intense nose, minerals and hydrocarbons. In the mouth it is dry, warm, moderately soft, fresh and tasty. Excellent

Very mineral, with white-fleshed fruit and plenty of waxes and hydrocarbons, all guided by immense citrus freshness. At this young age, it's reminiscent of a good German "trocken", but time will bring complexity.

DOMAINE SCHLUMBERGER

Located on the dizzying slopes of Guebwiller, in the south of Alsace, with 50° slopes and an altitude ranging from 250 to 390 metres, the Schlumberger vineyard on the mountainside is undoubtedly one of the most striking in Alsace. It has the great privilege of benefiting from a triple exposure to the sun: south-west, south, south-east. Guebwiller is the only commune in Alsace to boast 4 Grands Crus. Half of our vineyard, i.e. 70 hectares, is made up of these unique terroirs.
