Winemaker's Notes:

Number 66 on Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2004!

The 2000 vintage is a floral wine with hints of minerals and a yellow-green hue. The nose is discreet and the palate is vivid and well presented followed by a long and persistent finish.

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.
