Domaines Schlumberger (FR), Alsace Grand Cru Pinot Gris Spiegel 2017 750ML
Alsace Grand Cru, Alsace France Pinot Gris
Tasting Notes: Bright golden yellow with light reflections of good intensity. On the nose,
pleasant and intense with scents of yellow fruits, quince, Mirabelle plum; honey, button mushrooms and a light smokiness. The airing enhances the previous scents and reveals fine notes of caramel, liquorice with a floral hint. The nose reflects the excellent quality of the raw material. The profile is both typical and surprisingly mineral.
On the palate, medium and sharp with liveliness. We find the same aromas as on the nose, dominated by yellow fruits (Mirabelle plum, quince), fresh mushrooms, honey, white flowers, liquorice, caramel and still this underlying smoky touch. Fine liveliness and a persistent bitterness. The tasty balance, marked by the exposure to sunlight of the vintage, is very fine and elegant. Beautiful wine.
