  • THE BRIEF
  • Classic Alsatian Riesling, with beautiful ripeness and intensity, made in a dry style.

    White blossom, lime curd, and a stony mineral note, leading on to a palate that is bursting with lemon freshness and focused, linear acidity. The perfect accompaniment for fresh seafood, or as an aperitif. Lovely Riesling.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Our Riesling is planted essentially in the locality of Bollenberg and in the vines of Saering and Kessler, and also in the young vineyards of the Kitterlé.

    Slow pneumatic pressing, static racking. Fermentation in thermo-regulated tus for one to four months. Matured on lees during six to eight months.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    A classic Riesling nose of lime and white flowers, with a hint of yuzu citrus too. Time in the glass brings more stone fruit characters - white peach and nectarine and a fine, underlying mineral touch. The palate is lively and dry, still dominated by citrus fruits : lime zest and lemon with this exotic hint of white peach, and a clear mineral touch which carries through to the long finish.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Domaines Schlumberger is a family vineyard established in 1810. Nowadays, it is run by two generations working side by side for a better handover: Alain Beydon-Schlumberger, 6th generation, Séverine and Thomas Schlumberger, 7th generation. All of their wines are estate-grown and produced on site. With an exceptional location, situated on the steep hillsides of the Vosges, the vineyard benefits from the best exposures; Its slopes can reach 50°. Because of the Vineyard’s topography and the soil composition the yields are much lower than average for the region : 45 hl/ha for the entire Domaine. Even today, all vineyard work is carried out with teams of horses, who can navigate the steep slopes. 30 hectares are farmed biodynamically, to ensure great quality wines for the future generations.

    ANNE KREBIEHL MW - THE WINE ENTHUSIAST


    A ripe touch of dried tangerine peel on the nose leads onto a palate where lemon reigns. The palate tingles with bright, brisk freshness on a dry, light body. This is as refreshing as it is appetizing.
