Vineyards: Domaines Schlumberger now own 130 hectares of vineyards, 70 of which are Grand Cru. The classic range is named after the Abbot Princes of Murbach, who preserved the vineyards for over a 1000 years. The grapes come from the localities of Bollenberg and Bux as well as from the young vines from the Kessler and Kitterlé Grand Cru vineyards. It is often considered as corresponding to a Bordeaux “2nd” wine.
Winemaking: The grapes are hand-picked and whole bunches are pressed. There is static settling of the lees. The wine is fermented in temperature controlled tuns at cool temperatures to nurture the aromatic compounds in the grapes. After fermentation, the juice remains in stainless steel tanks on its lees for a further seven months before bottling. After bottling, the wine spends a further month in bottle before release.
