Winemaker's Notes:

The Pinot Gris color is a golden yellow with light reflections of a great intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows youth and concentration. The nose is marked, pleasant, distinguished and gives out a dominant of earthly scents. A hint of fruitiness is also detected, with flavors of quince, white flesh fruits, apple and a hint of lemon. The onset in the mouth is moderately ample, tender, and a little richness can be perceived. The alcoholic base is well balanced. One evolves on a full-bodied medium with a sharp vivacity. The candied range of flavors revolves around fruits, quince, oven-baked apple, as well as a smoky character. A slight bitterness can be detected. The finish offers a moderate length and a marked vivacity.

About Domaines Schlumberger:

Domaines Schlumberger only harvests grapes from their own vineyards and are entirely dedicated to quality, which is achieved through deliberately producing very restricted yields per hectare.

The planting and judicious choice of grape varieties, pruning the vines, constantly surveying the grapes as they ripen, and the precious care that they are given enable a strict selection to be made during harvesting. Each plot, or even each bunch of grapes, will only be picked if it is completely ripe.
