Reviews and Ratings

Grand Cru, Classic bone-dry Alsatian Riesling that demands your attention then rewards you to gorgeous aromas of wet stone, white peach and dried apricot. Pair with lemon chicken. Excellent! MINE: Domaines Schlumberger Kessler 2012 is a classic bone-dry Alsatian Riesling that demands food like smoked pork ribs and sauerkraut. Drink now or the wine has enough fruit, acidity and structure to hold or cellar until 2025. OTHER: Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review: A flowery and earthy Riesling that displays vivid aromas of ripe peaches, apples, and melon and a bit of a spicy edge to it. Most notably, it is the flinty minerality and lemony acidity that distinguishes this wine the most. Score 92. (Reviewed Nov. 2016). OTHER: The 2014 Riesling Grand Cru Kessler opens with a very clear, mineral and herbal bouquet of ripe and dried white fruits in the background. From marl and sandstone soils this is a pure, finessed and very elegant Riesling of great elegance. It reveals a very long, finessed and salty finish with a tight mineral structure and a really warm soul in its fruit flavors. The salinity is fascinating here and lingers for minutes. Great purity here. Drink Date: 2017-2030. Score - 93 (Stephan Reinhardt, robertparker.com, Feb. 28, 2017). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
