Seven generations and nearly two centuries have passed since the founding of Domaines Schlumberger. In 1810, Nicolas Schlumberger established his vineyards on the renowned, sunny slopes above the town of Guebwiller. Through successive generations the holding has grown from the original few small plots to one of Frances largest and finest vineyards. Seventh generation Alain Beydon-Schlumberger runs the domaine.

Grapes
30% Pinot Blanc, 70% Auxerrois

Viticulture
Although the Pinot Blanc is a very ancient grape variety (already know in the 16th century), it was only truly recognized a few years ago. It does not come from Burgundy, but the north of Italy. It was first introduced by the Anglo-Saxons, and then gradually discovered by the French who appreciated its freshness, suppleness and ability to go with food.

Our Pinot Blanc mainly comes from our Saering and Spiegel Grand Cru plots and Bux and Bollenberg plots.

Wine Making
Pressed pneumatically. Static settling of the must. Fermented in temperature controlled tuns from 1 to 4 months. Raised on the lees for 4 months. Bottled within the year.

Tasting Notes
Light golden yellow with golden reflections and good intensity. The wine has a fine youthful quality. The nose is pleasant and expressive and gives out scents of citrus fruits and refreshing lemon peel as well as a delicate vegetal hint. The palate is well balanced. The range of flavours is focused on citrus fruits, lemon peel but also white flesh fruits and pastries. The finish offers a moderate length and a sharp vivacity. The wine shows a slender and lengthy character without losing the freshness of the grape variety.

Food Matching
