Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

Fragrances of white flowers, citrus fruits and passionfruit are getting out of this yellow wine. In mouth, it is well-balanced and full of finesse. The taste of fresh apricot is perceptible. A mineral touch refreshes the whole taste.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Do you know ?

The Kitterlé was mentioned for the first time in 1699. This hill has been marketed under its own name since 1830.

Domain and appellation

  • Domaines Schlumberger

    Founded in 1810 by Nicolas Schlumberger, this family estate operates 140 hectares of vines including 70 hectares classified Grands Crus on 4 terroirs: Kitterlé, Kessler, Saering, Spiegel.

     

    • Terroir: The Kitterlé is a volcano-sandstone terroir which occupies a unique site on the mountain ledge by drawing a rocky spur with 3 exhibitions (south-west, south and south-east). The light sandy soil retained by immense dry stone walls allows only a limited yield (30 to 50 hl / ha in Riesling).

     

    • Vinification: The grapes are harvested manually. Different stages of winemaking are then practiced: Pressing in whole grape, static settling and fermentation in thermoregulated lightning for 1 to 4 months. The aging is carried out on fine lees for 8 months.
