2014 Schlumberger "Les Princes Abbes" Gewürztraminer Alsace

SKU #1318427 95 points Bob Campbell

 Very concentrated and opulent gewürztraminer with floral, potpourri, rose petal, anise and spice flavours. Wonderfully rich, creamy-textured and quite opulent wine that is deliciously drinkable now and probably at or close to being in peak condition.

Wine Enthusiast

 Exotic hints of passion fruit play among fresh flavors of citrus as well as riper, juicier stone fruit for a balanced, easy wine. The finish is off dry, but totally moreish. Enjoy soon while the fruit notes are in their prime  (11/2016)

Wine Spectator

 A creamy Gewürztraminer, with honeyed flavors of lychee and ripe green melon, grated ginger and candied pink grapefruit zest. Lightly juicy, with a slate-tinged finish. Drink now through 2019.  (2/2016)

Additional Information:



- Thought to have originated in the city of Tramin in Italy's Alto Adige, Gew├╝rztraminer is actually a pink-skinned incarnation of the Traminer varietal, and also the most widely planted variation. Known for its heady perfume redolent of rose petals and spice and tropical lychee flavor, its fuller body and moderate acidity, it can be made in a variety of styles ranging from completely dry to sweet late harvest wines. The best representations of the grape are grown in Austria and France's Alsace, though it's being made in smaller quantities in Eastern Europe, Italy, the Pacific Northwest, California, New Zealand and Australia.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- A region and appellation in France that has been a part of both France and Germany throughout history. Geologically isolated from both countries, Alsace has also maintained much of its own culture and wine tradition, while also being influenced by the traditions of both countries. Alsatian wine is easily recognized by it traditional tall bottles. Alsatian wine makers produce a unique style of varietal wine, 90 percent of which is white.
