Coming from farms in Lorch, Assmanshausen and Rüdesheim, it is a leap forward in intensity compared to Pinot N that we can consider an entry-level wine. This Pinot Noir is more mature, concentrated and intense, with cherries and minerality that give precision, with great finesse and elegance. August Kesseler took over the reins of the family winery in 1924, when he was only 19 years old and in the Rheingau area they mainly made bulk. At that time, the winery had only two and a half hectares of the more than 22 they have today. Today they have a magnificent heritage of vineyards in the best areas of the Rheingau such as Assmannshäuser Höllenberg, Rüdesheimer Berg Schlossberg, Rüdesheimer Bischofsberg, Rüdesheimer Berg Roseneck or Lorcher Schlossberg. With a balanced production between Riesling and Spatburgunder (Pinot Noir), they are one of the best producers in the Rheingau and especially thanks to the quality of their reds. The technical team is made up of the winemaker Max Himstedt, a legend in the house, who was recently joined by the young Simon Batarseh, to direct the near future of this great house with August Kesseler, which surprises us more every year.
