Natalie's Score: 89/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Domaines Schlumberger is one of Alsace’s iconic producers. The domaine boasts the largest vineyard holdings in the region with 120 hectares. While bigger is not necessarily better in the wine industry, this estate proves that size and quality can coexist by producing award-winning, critically acclaimed wines at all price levels. This is an excellent Pinot Gris. My note: Zesty refreshment with green apple, boysenberry, chives and lemon peel. Medium-bodied and mouth-watering.

Pinot Gris food pairings: spicy noodles with lemongrass chicken.

Adam Bekhor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2006 Domaines Schlumberger Pinot Gris is a wine that really is at its peak right now. It has wonderfully rich flavours of ripe pear, ripe peach and stone. It has great acidity but is complemented with a richness you can only find in a mature wine. My only complaint is that this wine seems a bit confused whether it’s dry or off-dry. I would recommend pairing this wine with Chinese food or even Indian.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
