Schlumberger Gewurztraminer Princes Abbes 2016 - 750ml
92 Points Decanter
"A beautiful off-dry Gewürz from this historic family winery, whose 130ha – including 70ha of grand cru vineyards – is the largest landowner in Alsace. Searingly fresh acidity cuts through the generous weight of ginger, lychees and rose creams. Complex, serious and long."
"The Traminer is probably the most famous Alsace wine. It comes from the North of Italy and dates from the XVI century. The Gewurztraminer (literally means spicy or musky Traminer) is a selection of the most aromatic Traminer wines and became Gewurztraminer around the year 1950." - Winery
Schlumberger's Tasting Notes
The robe is golden yellow with green reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows youth. The nose is marked, pleasant and intense. Sophisticated, we perceive a dominant of candied and overripe scents marked by exoticism : grapefruit, passion fruit, papaya, spices and ginger. The airing enhances these scents and reveals mango as well as a slight floral hint of peony. The nose reflects the perfect state of health of the grapes as well as a beautiful ripening. Its refined expression is a great pleasure without heaviness. Excellent varietal definition ! The onset in the mouth is moderately ample and mellow. The alcohol support is full-bodied. The wine evolves on a medium with a frank liveliness, marked by a sparking note. The range of aromas is the same as the nose, still dominated by citrus fruits and exoticism : grapefruit, litchi, mango, papaya, passion fruit, spices, candied ginger and peony. We perceive a hint of firm and savoury bitterness. The finish has a good length, 7-8 caudalies, a frank liveliness and a persistent bitterness. Very nice nd tasty balance. The class of the vintage tempers the extent of the grape variety. Marked by a sophisticated and subtle aromatic palette, this profile is remarkable.

Shipping wine around the country is very expensive. We charge about a third less than what it actually costs us. If you need to return your order (or if the wine gets returned back to us because you were unable to receive it after 3 attempts and you didn't email us to make other arrangements), we need to collect a return shipping fee that is up to double the amount of the shipping you paid. Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
