Sparkling Wine Production: "Méthode Traditionnelle"
We at Schlumberger have preserved and developed with utmost care the elaborate and traditional "Méthode Traditionnelle", originating from the Champagne region, since 1842. The fine perlage of the sparkling wine is created directly in the bottle during the second fermentation. Careful riddling of the bottles causes the yeast to be collected in the bottle neck and it is removed during the subsequent degorging (de-yeasting).
Each bottle of Schlumberger Klassik matures for at least 12 months on the lees, the “Reserve” and the “Große Reserve” even longer. At Schlumberger, the cellar mark on the bottom of the bottle is the sign of quality for production according to the “Méthode Traditionnelle”.
