With a single holding of more than 330 acres at Guebwiller, Domaines Schlumberger is the largest Grands Crus producer in Alsace. All Schlumberger wines are estate-grown. Seventy five percent of the vines are planted on very steep, terraced slopes, requiring horses be used for field work. The outstanding quality of the wines is due largely to Schlumberger's superior vineyards, but also because yields are deliberately kept low.
With a base of red sandstone, the Kitterle's permeable soil also includes plenty of quartz mixed with sand and gravel. This combination results in extremely rich wines and a very low yield.
The Pinot Gris, previously called Tokay d'Alsace, is one of the oldest Alsace grapes. The varietal is characterized by buttery, smoky aromas and powerfully intense flavors.
A fruity wine offering a subtle, complex bouquet with honey aromas. Luscious fruit flavors accented with cream, vanilla and almond. Good natural acidity. An elegant and supple wine, it is suitable for all occasions. Enjoyable now, but can easily be kept 6-8 years.
Rich & Creamy
a typical alsace Pino off dry light on the acidy a little sweet on the finish but well worth the price
What an amazing wine! In true Alsatian fashion, I was expecting a dry wine, but it was not. The sweetness was balanced by the acidity perfectly and the unique fruit flavors were able to shine through. I loved the smoky, mineral characteristics of this wine as well. A gem and and an excellent value, this is a perfect introductory wine into the Grand Crus of Alsace. I will enjoy this wine again!
Fruity and Smooth
