Winemaker's Notes:

The robe is a light yellow with an average intensity. The disk is bright, limpid, and transparent. The wine has a youthful character. The nose is varietal, with slight smoky and cocoa flavours. Airing reveals more fruity notes, apricots and peach. The onset in the mouth is fresh, delicate and moderately ample. One finds again of ripe fruit. In the middle mouth, some roundness brings full-bodiness and relief while remaining very fine. The finish presents a balanced alcoholic base along with an ample and fresh structure.

This wine is a good match for white meats in sauce, or game bird terrines or fish in white butter sauce.

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.
