Overview

In homage to the Princes Abbots who, for more than 1,000 years, have maintained and made our vineyard of Guebwiller thrive, our classic range has been named “Les Princes Abbés”.

For each vintage, this range benefits from grapes and wines from the Grands Crus of the Domaines Schlumberger. It is often considered as corresponding to a 2nd Bordeaux wine.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Its clear and bright robe is characterised by yellow colour with golden reflections. A youthful aspect is revealed.

Aroma

The olfactory approach is playful and seductive leading to a typical nose with a seasonal flavour evoking fresh bread crumb and yellow plums like mirabelle. When aerating it, these notes intensify and confirm, complemented by hints of fatty spring flowers such as acacia.

Palate

On the palate, the wine is charming with a freshness integrated into a real volume in the mouth. The aromas of the nose appear again, enhanced. Thus, I find the mirabelle again, complemented by fresh herb fragrances, a sign that the wine is mature for tasting. The length is somewhat generous, adding aromatic force to the finish with a scent of melissa.

Food Matching

Goes well with smoked or raw fish, simple bistro food, and delicaressen. Serve a temperature of 12°.
