2013 Schlumberger "Les Princes Abbés" Gewürztraminer Alsace
This is lemony and spicy with dried citrus fruits that follow through to a full body, dried fruit character and a flavorful finish. Drink now.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Very clear and precise, with smoky aromas on the nose the white golden colored 2013 Gewurztraminer Les Princes Abbés is a very elegant, sweet, piquant and frisky wine with a good and grippy structure and a long, salty/mineral finish. Just lovely not only at this price. Highly recommended. (SR)
Bright gold-tinged yellow. Lovely fresh Gewürztraminer aromas of mango, grapefruit, rose petal and smoked meat. Thick and sweet in the mouth, but with very good clarity of flavor. Finishes smooth, saline and fresh. Lighter-bodied and restrained in the style typical of this bottling, this is an excellent entry-level Gewürz that will match well with many foods.
Rose water and Turkish Delight are tempered by orange zest but present the abiding image of Alsace Gewurztraminer: richness and opulence countered by freshness and perfume. This is straitlaced, concentrated and finishes off dry.
Melon and lychee ride the silky palate of this light- to medium-bodied white, with light acidity and lots of ground spice, smoky mineral and candied grapefruit zest. Drink now through 2017. (Web-2015)
