Distinguished right from 1394, KESSLER has been sold under its own name since 1830.
KESSLER lies on a bedrock of sandstone and in the middle of this plot there is a small valley facing east, south-east which shelters it from the north winds and cold airstreams which comes from the valley of Guebwiller. A natural extension of Grand Cru KITTERLE, its reddish soils lie on a bedrock of Vosges sandstone. At the bottom, a limestone outcrop makes the soil more clayey.

Brilliant straw colour. Delicate, fragrant nose with pronounced notes of flowers and pepper. Unexuberant, lots of finesse. Very harmonious on the palate with unheavy sweetness.
