Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 vintage was #39 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

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

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.
