Schlumberger Riesling Les Princes Abbes'01, Alsace, France
A fine example of what could be a Classic Alsatian Riesling.
Technical Data:100% Riesling. The terroir of the slopes enables it to express itself in a most beautiful manner. An excellent gourmet wine ! Its strong points : its structure, its freshness, its length on the palate, its lemony notes. At Domaine Schlumberger, it is sold after being matured for several years in the cellar where it has gained balance and finesse.
Description:Pale straw yellow color. On the nose, lemon and mineral aromas. Dry and fruity palate displaying refreshing grapefruity and lemon-like flavors laced with discreet mineral notes ( flint stone) . An Alsace's classic wine with a long lasting finish.
Food Pairing & Service:Will be nice with seafood and fish but also a quite interesting choice to accompany Asian dishes. Serve chilled. Drink now up to 5 years.
Suggested Retail Price:$15.99
