Description

Vinous: 89 points
Pale straw. Aromas of white stone fruits, white flowers and minerals. Then more Auxerrois-dominated on the palate, with hints of honey and sweet spices mingling with flavors of chamomile and white stone fruits. Finishes bright and persistent. This wine is 70% Auxerrois and 30% Pinot Blanc, but it used to be a 50/50 blend; with the 2007 vintage, the Auxerrois was increased to make a rounder and less fruity wine that would be more flexible at the table. Yearly production is roughly 80,000 bottles, and this is Schlumberger’s bestselling wine. “It’s very important for us,” said Séverine Schlumberger. Everyone gets to know this wine, so it’s our calling card, and it always has to be more than just good.” I would add that one of the secrets to this wine’s quality is the fact that a portion of the Auxerrois vines used to make it are 30 years old and in the Kitterlé grand cru. “Perhaps not the most intelligent or economically feasible move we've ever made,” said Schlumberger with a smile, “but it’s certainly one of the reasons for this wine’s quality.”
