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.

The 2013 Riesling Les Princes Abbés opens with very clear and elegant aromas of stone fruits along with herbal and floral aromas on the nose. Quite expressive and long on the palate this is a dense yet pure, lemon-fresh and straight-forwarded wine with a smoky taste and grapefruit aromas in the long aftertaste. Wine Advocate 88 (2013)
