Domaines Schlumberger Les Princes Abbés Pinot Gris 2015
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
The robe is golden yellow with light reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows youth.
The nose is marked, pleasant and intense. We perceive a complex dominant of fruity scents, quince, GOlden apple, liquorice and a slight smokiness. The airing enhances these scents and reveals Mirabelle plum, orange blossom, viennoiseries and sweet almond. The ripe and healthy grapes are a perfect definition of the Pinot Gris. The complex scents provide a lot of pleasure.
The onset in the mouth is ample and powerful, soft. The alcohol support is full-bodied. The wine evolves on a medium of marked vivacity, with a slight sparkling note. The range of flavors is in line with that of the nose. Dominated by yellow fruits (Mirabelle plum, quince) but also Golden apple, liquorice, sweet almond, orange blossom, viennoiseries and an underlying smokiness. We perceive a hint of savoury bitterness. The finish has a good length, 5-6 caudalies, with a frank liveliness and a light persistent bitterness. Beautiful balance : rich, full and tasty. Without the scars of the vintage, this wine offers a complex and distinguished range of flavors. Very attractive profile!
TO be associated with local cuisine: traditional poultry rilettes, rabbit terrine with Bas-Armagnac, sweetbread cassolette with mushrooms or a soft cheese with a flowered rind such as the Brillat-Savarin. Serve at 12°.
Wine EnthusiastThe nose gives appetizing glimpses of pure ripe juicy pear. These flavors blossom fully on the palate and leave a most harmonious picture of ample, dry, but well-expressed pear fruit with lovely freshness. Everything here happens with ease. The finish is pure and fresh.
Wine SpectatorA round and juicy Pinot Gris, with fruit-forward apricot and papaya notes layered with smoke, spice and citrus accents. Drink now through 2019.
