Schlumberger Pinot Blanc Les Princes Abbés

DSCF5690Schlumberger Pinot Blanc 2013, Les Princes Abbés

Light and fresh but with very moreish juicy melon and pear fruits, and a nicely rounded finish.

Perfect as a posh aperitif, with fish or maybe an Alsatian onion tart.

Available from Searsons, Monkstown,

I bumped into Séverine Schlumberger recently, at the portfolio tasting held by Tindal & Co. We had great fun doing a masterclass on Riesling together in Ballymaloe House a few years ago. Much of this family-owned estate is now farmed biodynamically. I have been enjoying a range of Pinot Blancs from Alsace over the last year, and featured several in my wine guide. They seem to have improved a lot in recent years and make for very good easy-drinking refreshing wines with lovely rounded fruits.
