Domaines Schlumberger Riesling Alsace Aoc les Princes Abbés 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

**** - Decanter Magazine ‘Best Value Award’ - Decanter Magazine Gold Medal Winner - Decanter Magazines World Wine Awards 2009 “Restrained but elegant aromas - citrus and minerals, but much more going on (at the moment) on the palate. Ripe apples, lots of flavour and a full body and dry finish without sacrificing any of this wine’s unbelievable elegance.” Decanter Magazine. The Domaines Schlumberger estate is located in Alsace, east of France. They are 100 % estate winegrowers who exclusively harvest and transform our own production. Situated on the dizzy heights of the hills of Guebwiller, in the south of Alsace, with slopes of 50° and at an altitude going from 250 to 390 metres, our vineyard is certainly one of the most breathtaking in Alsace. Its excellent southwest, south, south east exposure gets a great deal of sunshine. Guebwiller is the only spot in Alsace producing 4 Grands Crus. The wine is a light yellow with green reflections of a mild intensity and has a youthful quality. The nose is marked, pleasant and distinguished, with a good intensity. It gives out a slightly floral and spicy dominant of fruity scents, citrus fruits, lemon. Airing does not give out much more. One can still perceive the fruitiness, combined with a delicate exotic hint. The nose displays much smoothness, and time will help it open out. The onset in the mouth is ample and fleshy, with a well balanced alcoholic base. One evolves on a medium with a delicate and mature vivacity marked by a sparkling note. The complex range of flavours mixes fruits, citrus fruits, lemon peel, still with a floral character and an underlying minerality. The finish has a beautiful length in the mouth, 7 caudalies, and a marked vivacity.
