Description

A fruity Pinot Gris from the Alsace region of France, to the west of the border with Germany, close to Strasbourg. Pinot Gris is the same grape as Pinot Grigio; when grown in Alsace it’s called Pinot Gris and has more body and flavour than Italian Pinot Grigio, and a different texture, which can divide opinion! The region is famous for its gastronomy, this wine in particular is a great food match. 13.5% ABV.

Who makes this and where is it made?

Domaines Schlumberger is the largest Grands Crus producer in Alsace and located in the valley of Guebwiller on volcanic subsoil. All Schlumberger wines are grown on their own 330 acre Estate. The 'Les Princes Abbés 'range of wines pays tribute to the Abbots princes from the local Abbey at Murbach. These princes owned the vineyards in the region until the French Revolution, and were the first to sell the wines from Guebwiller abroad.
