2014 Domaines Schlumberger Pinot Gris Grand Cru Kessler
Grand Cru Pinot Gris from the exposed terraces of the Sub Vosges hills. The Kessler Grand Crus is set in the centre of the hill, where it forms a small valley, which protects the vineyard from the northern winds and cold air streams brought up by the valley of Guebwiller. As this is a warmer micro-climate with good aeration and even ripening, it is a great area for Gewurztraminer, Riesling and Pinot Gris.
Smoky mineral and almond blossom accents are layered with juicy glazed apple, singed orange peel and honeycomb flavors in this lightly sweet and silky Pinot Gris enlivened by mouthwatering acidity. Textbook Pinot Gris, with a long, lightly fleshy finish. Drink now through 2029.
