Pinot Gris, Les Princes Abbés, Domaines Schlumberger

Domaines Schlumberger
Product Code: DS25ZZWC

Tasting Notes

The robe is lemon yellow with light reflections, of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows youth. The nose is marked, pleasant and of good intensity. Sophisticated, we perceive a dominant of yellow fruit scents, quince, Mirabelle plum, honey, flowers and acacia. The airing enhances these scents and reveals hop and fresh mushrooms as well as a characteristic fine smoky touch. The fragrance profile is perfect, it splendidly shows the complexity of this great grape variety. The onset in the mouth is fleshy, soft, the alcohol support is full-bodied. The wine evolves on an incisive and lively medium, marked by a sparkling note. We find the same aromas as on the nose, still dominated by yellow fruits, Mirabelle plum, quince, acacia honey, fresh mushroom, hop and this smoky touch. The finish has a good length, 6-7 caudalies, as well as a frank liveliness. The balance of this wine is tasty and precise. Never is it dominated by the richness and the alcohol support. It delivers a right aromatic palette, typical of the remarkable vineyard work.

            [Notes1] => The robe is lemon yellow with light reflections, of good intensity. The disk is

The nose is marked, pleasant and of good intensity. Sophisticated, we perceive

acacia. The airing enhances these scents and reveals hop and fresh mushrooms 
as well as a characteristic fine smoky touch. The fragrance profile is perfect, it

The onset in the mouth is fleshy, soft, the alcohol support is full-bodied. The 
wine evolves on an incisive and lively medium, marked by a sparkling note. We

plum, quince, acacia honey, fresh mushroom, hop and this smoky touch. The

of this wine is tasty and precise. Never is it dominated by the richness and the 
alcohol support. It delivers a right aromatic palette, typical of the remarkable 
vineyard work.
            [Notes2] => Primarily produced in the named locality of Schimberg situated in the valley of Guebwiller, on a volcanic subsoil, this Pinot Gris benefits from a full South exposure. 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] => Intense, spicy bouquet leading to luscious fruit on the palate and a long finish.
            [MediaNotes] => 
            [ServingSuggestion] => It can be associated with a spiced chickpea salad, chicken pastilla, veal 
sweetbreads with cream or a soft and washed-rind cheese, such as the Ami du 
Chambertin. Serving temperature: 12°C.
            [WineMakingNotes] => Originally named Tokay d’Alsace, then Tokay Pinot Gris, this type of vine is not 
related to the Hungarian Tokaji, which comes from the Furmint type of vine. In 
reality it is a pinot from Burgundy that became known in Alsace from the 17th 
century. The name Pinot Gris is generalized since 2007.

Slow pneumatic pressing, static racking. Fermentation in thermo-regulated tuns 
for 1 to 4 months. Maturation on lees from 6 to 8 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.

                    [Notes1] => 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.

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 >

Primarily produced in the named locality of Schimberg situated in the valley of Guebwiller, on a volcanic subsoil, this Pinot Gris benefits from a full South exposure. 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 >

Originally named Tokay d’Alsace, then Tokay Pinot Gris, this type of vine is not related to the Hungarian Tokaji, which comes from the Furmint type of vine. In reality it is a pinot from Burgundy that became known in Alsace from the 17th century. The name Pinot Gris is generalized since 2007. Slow pneumatic pressing, static racking. Fermentation in thermo-regulated tuns for 1 to 4 months. Maturation on lees from 6 to 8 months.
