Color & Clarity: Brilliant pale straw
Aromas: Earthy, minerally nose with restrained pear fruit
Flavors: Flavors of underripe pear, lemon and flintstone minerality
Texture/Body: Austere, old world style with tart acidity and medium body
Finish: Fairly long finish with the wine showing more fruit here than at front or mid-palate
A decent rendition of Alsatian style Pinot Blanc with a certain richness, but more mineral qualities than fruit. And the alcohol is lower than most Alsatians, which I like. Food wine for sure. This is the first Michel-Schlumberger wine I’ve seen in my local GO’s. Not a barnbuster, but a serviceable white from a variety we see little of at GO or elsewhere. Selling on the winery’s website for $24.00, which I feel is ridiculous. Obviously, five bucks is way better! You can check the Cellartracker reviews here.
