Domaines Schlumberger Riesling Saering Grand Cru 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"A fresh Riesling, with bright and tangy acidity and flavors of passion fruit, kumquat, quince and black licorice snap. Well-integrated, with a sweet, smoky layer running through the wine and lingering on the mouthwatering finish...92" WS 11/11 "Schlumberger’s practice of aging wine before release means that this is a Riesling well on the way to impressive maturity. It is poised, with an aroma of currant and hints of toast and flower. While drinkable now, this would certainly be worth aging for several more years...93" WE 08/12

Tasting Notes:

The colour is lemon yellow with green reflections. The disk is bright, limpid, and transparent. The wine presents a beautiful youth. The nose is frank, pleasant and bold with an average intensity. It gives fine fruity fragrances, citrus fruit, yellow lemon, white flowers, rather complex. Airing enhances the lemony scents but remains complex and austere. The fruit reveals the perfect ripeness of the grapes but seems to cross through a closed stage. Time will allow it to gracefully mature. The wait is imperative ! The onset in the mouth is rich and fleshy. The alcoholic base is full-bodied. The register is sharp and sparkling where the range of aromas is dominated by the citrus fruit, lime and a fine floral touch with at this stage, an underlying minerality. A long length on the finish, 7 caudalies and a sharp vivacity.
