Domaines Schlumberger Gewurztraminer Cuvee Christine - 37.5cl

Gewurztraminer Cuvee Christine - 37.5cl

The robe is golden yellow and intense with light reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows concentration and youth.
The nose is marked, pleasant, intense. We perceive a dominant of sophisticated and exotic scents : banana, mango, papaya, passion fruit, blood orange and a floral hint (rose). The airing enhances the previous scents and reveals lemon, apricot, white peach, litchi, spices and candied ginger. The superb over-ripening shows a fascination range of scents. Sensual and intoxicating, it glorifies the great grape variety.
The onset in the mouth is dense, caressing, liquorish. It shows a silky and smooth touch and a full-bodied alcohol support. The wine evolves on a medium of marked vivacity, with a sparkling note. We find the aromas as on the nose, still dominated by exoticism : lemon, blood orange, white peach, apricot, banana, passion fruit, papaya, mango, flowers, rose, spices and ginger. We perceive a hint of savoury bitterness. The finish has a long length, 9-10 caudalies, a frank liveliness and a hint of persistent bitterness. This wine deserves a lot of superlatives. Its balance is stunning ! Controlled liquor, smooth, deep, accurate complex aromas, it has achieved perfection.
