Debra Meiburg MW Meets the Winemaker 151: Alain Schlumberger, Domaines Schlumberger

Sixth generation winemaker Alain Schlumberger (pronounced “Schlum-ber-zhay” since Alsace has been part of France) shares his views on Pinot Gris, Alsace’s most versatile, in-betweener wine. He fills Debra in on a little bit of the history of his family’s estate, and how they came to have the biggest domaine in Alsace. Finally, Alain weighs in on the sweet vs. dry debate that is still very much alive in Alsace, explaining how they latest round of back and forth began with the rather ripe 2000 vintage.
