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.

Originally called Tokay dAlsace, then Tokay Pinot Gris, this grape variety is not related in any way to the Hungarian Tokaji which comes from the Furmint grape variety. It is actually a Burgundian pinot which has been found in Alsace since the 17th century. The name Pinot Gris is generally used from 2007.

Grapes
100% Pinot Gris

Viticulture
Mainly produced in the Schimberg plot, which lies in the valley of Guebwiller, on volcanic subsoil, our Pinot Gris faces due south.

Wine Making
Hand-picked. Slowly pressed pneumatically. Static settling of the must. Temperature controlled fermentation from 1 to 4 months. Raised on fine lees for about 8 months.

Tasting Notes
Colour: Golden yellow with good intensity.

Nose: Focused and beautifully intense with white fruits, quince and cooked apple aromas with a smoky hint. Aerating reveals cherries, plums and spices.

Palate: Rich, dense with hints of sweetness. Well balanced with lively quince, cooked apples and honey flavours followed by touches of smoke and hops and a good long finish.
