Description
 
Established in 1810, Schlumberger is one of the most reliable and respected names from Alsace. The family is also the largest holders of Grand Cru vineyards in the area, including ownership in Kessler, Kitterle, Saering and Spiegel. Lying on Guebwiller’s splendid slopes, this 140 hectare domaine stretches over more than 5 kilometres on the southern side of the Vosges. At an altitude of 250 to 380 metres it benefits from a splendid climate which has led this valley to be called the "Valley of Flowers". The slopes have light sandy soil due to the slow erosion of the underlying pink sandstone. This vineyard faces south-east, south and south-west meaning that it is ideally exposed to the sun. The vines themselves stretch for 850 kilometres (570 miles) in horizontally planted rows along 5 terraces which are protected by dry-stone walls.

From sandy clay soils on a pink sandstone bedrock the 2012 Riesling Grand Cru Kitterlé starts with a coolish, aristocratic, precise and very stony/flinty flavor on the nose that is beautifully intertwined with the concentrated white fruit flavors and the herbal and flowery notes of this wine. Very pure, elegant and intense on the palate, this Kitterlé is full of energy and tension plus develops a long and mineral finish. Drink this expressive wine over 20 years, starting not much earlier than 2020. Wine Advocate 92 (2012)
