Domaines Schlumberger
Product Code: DS27ZZWC

Tasting Notes

The color is lemon yellow with light green reflections of good intensity. The disc is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine presents youth. The nose is frank, pleasant and intense. We wcan smell a dominant of exotic scents, citrus fruits, candied orange, grapefruit, pear, peach, mango, passion fruit. AIring amplifies these smells and reveals a floral note, rose and spices, ginger, curry. The nose is remarkable for its freshness and exoticism. The palette presents a dazzling and racy complexity. The attack on the palate is dense, soft, the alcoholic base is full-bodied. We evolve in a sinewy environment, marked by pearl. We find the range of aromas of the nose, always dominated by citrus fruits, grapefruit, candied orange, exotic fruits, peach, pear, passion fruit, mango, rose, spices, curry and ginger. There is a hint of firm bitterness. The finish has good length, 8-9 caudalies, as well as frank liveliness and lingering bitterness. As usual, the balance impresses me with its tasty and structured appearance. The range of aromas ensures freshness and refinement.

refinement.
            [Notes2] => This Gewurztraminer comes mainly from the named localities of Bollenberg and Bux as well as from the young vines from some of the Grand Cru vineyards. Bux and Bollenberg  are on limestone/clay . On the slopes the vineyards are arranged into terraces and are worked by horses, lessening compaction and thus the potential for erosion. The vineyard work is done according to a local charter, TYFLO, a sustainable initiative to elimiate the use of herbicides. In addition, 30 of the domaine`s hectares are farmed biodynamically.
            [Notes3] => 
            [Notes4] => Complex aromas of fruit and spice, full and rich on palate with lovely balance.  One of the best accompaniments to smoked salmon and smoked cheeses.
            [MediaNotes] => 
            [ServingSuggestion] => I like to pair it with a wok of spicy vegetables and soy sauce, Chinese noodles 
with shrimps, a fish curry risotto or a soft cheese and washed rind, like Géromé. 
Serving temperature : 12°C.
            [WineMakingNotes] => The Traminer is probably the most famous Alsace wine. It comes from the North 
of Italy and dates from the XVI century. The Gewurztraminer (literally means 
spicy or musky Traminer) is a selection of the most aromatic Traminer wines and 
became Gewurztraminer around the year 1950

Slow, pneumatic pressing was followed by static racking. Fermentation in 
thermo-regulated tuns for one to four months. Maturation on lees from six to 
eight months.

Thanks to the foresight of Ernest Schlumberger at the turn of the 19th Century, the family lands increased from just 20ha to 140ha. Ernest purchased 
phylloxera-ravaged vineyards, replanting and resurrecting as he went. Over half of these vineyards are classified as Grand Cru sites, producing steely mineral led wines from the four famous Grand Crus of Guebwiller: Saering, Kitterle, Kessler and Spiegel. The wines have longevity and life, not just from these steep stony sites but from a deep rooted culture of organics, 
sustainability and on 30ha, biodynamic farming. Séverine Beydon-
Schlumberger and her brother Thomas now run the company with their Uncle Alain Freyburger making the wines in tandem with nature.

About this product +

Producer >

An estate nestled in the hills of Guebwiller in Southern Alsace, carefully managed and expanded by the Schlumberger family since 1810. Thanks to the foresight of Ernest Schlumberger at the turn of the 19th Century, the family lands increased from just 20ha to 140ha. Ernest purchased phylloxera-ravaged vineyards, replanting and resurrecting as he went. Over half of these vineyards are classified as Grand Cru sites, producing steely mineral led wines from the four famous Grand Crus of Guebwiller: Saering, Kitterle, Kessler and Spiegel. The wines have longevity and life, not just from these steep stony sites but from a deep rooted culture of organics, sustainability and on 30ha, biodynamic farming. Séverine Beydon-Schlumberger and her brother Thomas now run the company with their Uncle Alain Freyburger making the wines in tandem with nature. 

Viticulture >

This Gewurztraminer comes mainly from the named localities of Bollenberg and Bux as well as from the young vines from some of the Grand Cru vineyards. Bux and Bollenberg are on limestone/clay . On the slopes the vineyards are arranged into terraces and are worked by horses, lessening compaction and thus the potential for erosion. The vineyard work is done according to a local charter, TYFLO, a sustainable initiative to elimiate the use of herbicides. In addition, 30 of the domaine`s hectares are farmed biodynamically.

Winemaking >

The Traminer is probably the most famous Alsace wine. It comes from the North of Italy and dates from the XVI century. The Gewurztraminer (literally means spicy or musky Traminer) is a selection of the most aromatic Traminer wines and became Gewurztraminer around the year 1950 Slow, pneumatic pressing was followed by static racking. Fermentation in thermo-regulated tuns for one to four months. Maturation on lees from six to eight months.
