Domaines Schlumberger Spiegel Pinot Gris 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The robe is a light golden yellow with green reflections of a good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine has a fine youthful quality. The nose is marked, pleasant, distinguished and intense and gives out a dominant of candied scents, white flesh fruits, quince, and apple, delicately smoky. Airing enhances the fruity character and reveals a very complex underlying minerality. The nose is splendid and pure. Time will allow it to open out. The onset in the mouth is ample and marrowy, the alcoholic base is vigorous. One evolves on a medium with a marked and refreshing vivacity supported by a slightly sparkling note. The range of flavors is in line with that of the nose, candied dominant of white flesh fruits, quince, apple, pear, and autumn fruits, slightly smoky. The finish has a beautiful length, 7 caudalies and a incisive vivacity. The structure of this wine is remarkably tasty and fleshy. Time will allow to refine it.

Intense on the nose with lots of heirloom apple notes, a touch of gaminess, and layers of dried floral spice, white pepper, and hints of caramel and honeycomb. Smooth and polished in the mouth, this has a wonderful texture but it does lack the intensity of flavors that marks the best examples of Alsace Pinot Gris. The fruit is a bit in the background, all old apple toned and slightly savory with a lovely umami framing note. There are some small candiedcitrus framing notes on the palate that lead to a dry, firm and long finish which takes on the spicy character of dried flowers and honeycomb found on the nose. 89pts
