2018 Domaines Schlumberger Riesling Les Princes Abbes, Alsace, France (750ml)
The robe is light yellow with green reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent.The nose is pleasant, intense, and sophisticated, with candied candied fruit scents: lime, yuzu zest and white flowers. Airing enhances these scents and reveals an exotic personality. The structure is precise and refreshing. Marked by a spry range of flavors that beautifully expresses the terroir. A great match with sunny cuisine: parmesan, dried tomatoes and basil crème brûlée, a shrimp, mango and grapefruit salad, devilled tomatoes with crab or a goat’s milk cheese such as Charolais.
Notes of ripe lemon have a honeyed, herbal lift, with a hint of candied lemon peel. The palate of this wine comes with concentration and a lemon freshness that radiates ripeness, brightness and intensity in equal measure. The finish is long, lemony, waxy and dry. Lovely now the wine is certain to evolve. Drink now–2030.
