Domaines Schlumberger Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc les Princes Abbés 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The robe is a lemon yellow with light green reflections of good intensity, the disk is bright, limpid, transparent. The wine shows youth. The nose is frank, pleasant with a beautiful intensity. One notes a dominant of fruity fragrances, citrus fruits, lemon. Airing enhances the fruity character, the citrus fruits, and shows delicate, very complex smoky, floral notes. The nose is slightly restrained but shows freshness. The onset in the mouth is moderately ample, the alcoholic base is balanced. One evolves on a strict and tonic, finely sparkling medium. The range of aromas expresses citrus fruits, lime, orgeat, sweet almond. The final presents an average length, 5 caudalies, and a frank vivacity. The structure is fresh and light. Match is with shellfish or fresh goat cheese.

The nose on the wine is full of almond, cream, banana, and citric notes like lemon and orange, letting you know it is going to be acidic. And acidic it is...The palate is sharp and the acidity overwhelms the fruit followed by a lack of finish. After sitting, orange peel became apparent on the palate, but it was too little, too late. I'll stick with their Pinot Gris, which I liked significantly better.
