About Domaines Schlumberger

Schlumberger grows all of their own fruit.

Located on the dizzy heights of the hills of Guebwiller, in southern Alsace, with slopes reaching 50° and at an altitude going from 250 to 390 metres, our mountain-side vineyard is surely one of the most breathtaking in Alsace.
Its excellent southwest, south, south east exposure ensures it perfect sun exposure.
Guebwiller is the only spot in Alsace producing 4 Grands Crus.

Viticulture

It is a 27 hectare area, of which 20 hectares are owned by the Domaine Schlumberger.

Its height ranges from 260 to 300 metres.

Its average yield is 40 hectolitres per hectare.

Its name means “sea ring”. This “terroir” slips down the mountain side and extends like a peninsula over the plain, forming the shape of a ring. Million years ago, this area was covered by the sea. The word “Ring” was also used to designate a Roman camp, and “Seh” originates from sehen (see in German): it is now proved that an observation camp was indeed erected there.
The stony and rather heavy soils of this Grand Cru suit first if all the Riesling. Saering ‘marl/limestone/sandstone terroir brings out the best in this magnificent, fine, delicate Riesling.

Saering was first mentioned in 1250 and marketing began under this name in 1830.

96 Points

A touch of lemon balm adds a breezy freshness to the nose, while a pure, bright and precise notion of ripe lemon pervades and takes over the entire palate. On its fringes, delicious hints of chamomile and chervil appear alongside ripe red apple. This is a tantalizing charmer in spite of its absolute dryness and vivid acidity. Drink 2017–2037.
