SCHLUMBERGER RIESLING LES PRINCE ABBES 2019

HISTORY:
The Riesling is the noblest and finest grape variety of Alsace. Introduced in the 15th century from Rhineland, it is supposed to be in fact originating from the Orleans region. It is very different from its German homologue and from the many other rieslings that are now appearing all over the world.

Winemaker Notes:

The robe is light yellow with green reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent.The nose is pleasant, intense, and sophisticated, with candied candied fruit scents: lime, yuzu zest and white flowers. Airing enhances these scents and reveals an exotic personality. The structure is precise and refreshing. Marked by a spry range of flavors that beautifully expresses the terroir.

A great match with sunny cuisine: parmesan, dried tomatoes and basil creme brulée, a shrimp, mango and grapefruit salad, devilled tomatoes with crab or a goat's milk cheese such as Charolais.

Critical Acclaim:

91 points - Wine Enthusiast
"Notes of ripe lemon have a honeyed, herbal lift, with a hint of candied lemon peel. The palate of this wine comes with concentration and a lemon freshness that radiates ripeness, brightness and intensity in equal measure. The finish is long, lemony, waxy and dry. Lovely now the wine is certain to evolve. Drink now-2030."

90 points - Wine & Spirits
"A terrific vintage from Schlumberger's estate, this includes fruit from three grand crus in Guebwiller-Saering, Kessler and Kitterlé. Its savory richness has more purity and refinement than you might expect to find in a wine at this price. The cool, stony minerality, the delicate jasmine scents and the bright, herbal acidity makes this a lovely companion for pike quenelles."
