Domaines Schlumberger Gewurztraminer les Princes Abbes 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The robe is clear golden yellow with green reflections, of good intensity. The disc is limpid, bright and transparent. The wine has a youthful character.The nose is frank and pleasant, with great intensity. We perceive a dominance of elegant, extroverted and exuberant scents. Floral notes like peony, rose, spices, cumin and candied ginger besides exotic fruits like litchi. Airing enhances the previous scents and strengthens the touch of spices, nutmeg and exoticism, mango.The nose expresses marvellously the fragrant, heady, complex palette typical of this very beautiful grape variety. The ripeness of the grapes is exemplary.The onset in the mouth is full-bodied and fleshy, vigorous. We perceive mellowness, then we evolve on a sharp and edgy medium, marked by a sparkling note. The range of aromas is very elegant. We still perceive dominant floral notes, rose, peony, and fruity aromas, grapefruit, exotic, litchi, passion fruit and a slight spicy touch, candied ginger. The bitterness is fine and balanced. The finish has good length, 8-9 caudalies, a fine touch of bitterness and a frank vivacity.As usual, the Gewurztraminer from this vineyard is perfectly balanced. Full-bodied, generous, complex. Vinification is remarkable.
