Domaines Schlumberger Riesling Les Princes Abbes 2008
Clear, bright yellow with green reflections of a good intensity. Intense, honest aromas, with fresh and fruity notes of grapefruits and green lime. On the palate, it is strong, lively, and full-bodied, reinforced by a saltiness and superb freshness that also persists in the finish. A perfect wine for seafood, shellfish, and raw or marinated fish.
The Schlumberger estate is located in Alsace, which is east of France. In 1810, Nicolas Schlumberger bought about 50 acres of vineyards and laid the foundations for a rare harmony between human needs and the earth - Domaines Schlumberger was born. This respect of nature and environment has always been an essential element of the way of life and philosophy of the Schlumberger family. And, it is still evident even today—through manual plowing of the fields with horses and biodynamic farming, which ensure great, quality wines for future generations. Riesling is the noblest and finest varieties of Alsace so lovers of dry, straight, and racy Riesling—enjoy yourselves!
