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 ?

Similar to the Riesling, the Gewurtztraminer has been one of the most expensive wine in Europe since before the Revolution. “Traminer” is the name of the grape variety and “gewurtz” means “spiced” in Alsatian. 
 

Domain and appellation

  • Domaines Schlumberger

    Founded in 1810 by Nicolas Schlumberger, this family estate operates 130 hectares of vines including 70 hectares classified as Grands Crus on 4 terroirs: Kitterlé, Kessler, Saering, Spiegel.

    • Viticulture: The vineyard is managed in a reasoned struggle. The harvest is manual and takes place when the grapes are almost overripe.
       
    • Vinification: Direct pressing precedes an alcoholic fermentation from 3 weeks to 1 month in thermo-regulated vats. The wine is then aged on fine lees for 8 months.
