Winemaker's Notes:

#39 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

Princes Abbes Pinot Gris is a light yellow with yellow straw reflections. The nose is open with autumn fruit flavors like quince and baked apples. Airing reveals honeyed and crystallized notes and the onset in the mouth is ample but remains fresh. In the middle mouth, a little bit of roundness and delicately that is supported by the acidity of the wine is present.

This wine is a good match for white meats in sauce, game terrines, pastries or cheeses.

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.
