Domaines Schlumberger, Riesling Grand Cru Saering, Alsace 2019
(at London, 10 Jul 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2030
Like all great Alsace Rieslings, this has the acidity to guarantee it a long life ahead, but it's delicious now nonetheless. Schlumberger is a famous name – and the largest estate – in the Alsace region, with 140ha planted, half on grand cru sites like this one. The beauty of this wine lies in the contrast between the fleshy, forward peach and lemon citrus fruit and the backbone that comes from racy acidity and a seam of minerality. There's only 2g/L residual sugar, so no perceptible sweetness. Just delicous dry Riesling with great cellaring potential.
