Domaines Schlumberger Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc les Princes Abbés 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes It is a dry wine combining the freshness of one with the aromatic qualities of the other. It is quite close to the grape variety Chardonnay which can be found in Burgundy, and is in the middle of the range of Alsace wines. Its strong points : its suppleness, its emphatic fruitiness, its ability to easily go with a large range of dishes. Cellaring potential : 3 or 4 years.

3 of 9 on the sweetness meter on the back of the bottle (the meter starts at 1, not 0 though). A touch of bottle funk immediately on opening the bottle, but this blew off quickly. Some peach on the nose but its a bit muted. The nose makes me expect a fatter wine than this turns out to be. On the palate there's good balance with the acidity matching any residual sugar well. Mid is a bit flat, but the finish livens back up and is very pleasant. This would be great with grilled fish.

Smoky green melon rind & quince aromas precede mouth-filling flavors of citrus and green apple, viscous, wet stone and steely with good acid and a moderately long finish. Salads, anyone? Safeway has this wine for less than $9. A steal!!

pale lemon green color; fresh lemon-lime citrus, green apple, and mineral notes on the nose; more textured body that expected and well integrated medium high acidity with clean long-ish finish; solid value at 13.99

Great wine, hard wine to find in Australia, expect to pay $25-30 for any vintage year but well worth it. And you will not find it at safeway/dan murphys for $9 a bottle! (thats about what Schlumberger gets for it & safeway here would not stock it ever) Its imported exlusivley and in limited amounts by mezzaine wine...

    Domaines Schlumberger Pinot Blanc 'Les Princes Abbes' 2006: Der Pinot Blanc von Domaines Schlumberger zeigt sich im Glas in einem strahlenden Goldgelb. Sein Bukett ist angenehm, markant und ausdrucksstark mit frischen, fruchtigen Aromen von Zitrusfrüchten. Mit zunehmender Verweildauer des Weines im Glas verstärkt sich der fruchtige Charakter des Buketts und delikate Kräuternoten treten hervor. Der verspielte und erfrischende Duft des Pinot Blanc ist wirklich beeindruckend. Am Gaumen präsentiert er sich zunächst "mäßig" üppig. Er entwickelt einen frischen, markanten Charakter mit einer leicht prickelnden Note. Im Mund begeistert sein vielschichtiger Geschmack, der von Frucht- sowie Gebäck-Aromen dominiert wird. Er erfreut mit einem lebhaften Abgang von mittlerer Länge. Insgesamt ein feingliedriger Wein mit jungem, frischem Charakter.Dieser Weißwein schmeckt hervorragend zu Fischgerichten aber auch zu Ziegenfrischkäse sowie rohem Gemüse mit Dipp sehr zu empfehlen.Weingut: Domaines SchlumbergerRegion: ElsassRebsorte: 30% Pinot Blanc, 70% Auxerrois (Malbec)Inhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 12,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 3,5 g/lRestzucker: 5,5 g/l Lagerfähigkeit: 2 - 4 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 8-12 °C Suche nach Rebsorten > Weiße Rebsorten > Auxerrois

    Supple and fruity, it can be used whenever a white wine is called for. Easy to drink on all occasions.
