Winemaker's Notes:

The robe is yellow with green reflections. The nose is marked, frank, with very fresh and fruity notes. Airing develops citrus fruit perfumes of grapefruit and green lime. In the mouth, the onset is incisive and sinewy. The middle mouth is full-bodoed, reinforced by a salinity that also persists at the end mouth along with a superb freshness. Lovers of dry, straight and racy Riesling... enjoy yourselves!

A perfect wine for seafood, shellfish and also for raw or marinated fish.

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.
