Wine Review: We stopped in for a drink recently at the Oak Room @ the Fairmont Copley Plaza hotel in Boston. The wine I enjoyed was this light yellow wine from Schlumberger. This organic Riesling opens with a mild floral and slightly sweet smelling bouquet. On the palate, this wine is off dry, lively, and very easy to drink. The wine expressed tasty peach flavors. The finish was slightly prolonged and refreshing. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The robe is a light yellow with green reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid. The wine has a fine youthful quality. The nose is reserved, delicate. One perceives fine fruity hints, citrus fruits, candied orange zests. Aeration reveals a slight lemony hint. The complex nose shows its reserve but indicates a good degree of maturity of the grapes. This wine requires time to open out. The onset in the mouth is slender, the alcohol support well balanced. One evolves on a sharp, edgy and airy medium where the complex flavours remain reserved but with a dominant of citrus fruits : lemon. The structure is delicate, well marked by freshness.
