Domaines Schlumberger Riesling Les Princes Abbes 2007
from Alsace, France
The robe is a lemon yellow with light green reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid, transparent. The wine shows youth. The nose is frank, pleasant with a good intensity. It is distinguished, and one notes a fruity dominant, citrus fruits, candied lemon and a slight mineral, smoky hint. Airing enhances the citrus fruit, lemon character and reveals spicy, ginger, white flower notes, and still this slight delicate minerality. The nose is a delight, the aromatic profile is typical and well emphasized by the reflection of the terroir. Very beautiful nose.
The onset in the mouth is dense and powerful. The alcoholic base is marked. One evolves on an incisive and edgy, finely sparkling medium. One notes fruity aromas, citrus fruits, candied lemon, spices, ginger and always this underlying minerality.
The final shows a good persistence, 7 caudalies, and a strict vivacity. The structure is exemplary, light and distinguished. A well-done work.
To be seved within 5 to 7 years, at a temperature of 54°C. I like to serve it with a shrimp salad with ginger or with scallops with citrus fruits.
