Albert Mann, Wettolsheim  

“The Barthelme brothers –Jacky and Maurice – have maintained their position near the forefront of Alsace viticulture, farming a range of relatively far-flung and outstanding vineyards, as well as offering excellent value virtually throughout their range.” David Schildknecht, The Wine Advocate

This well-regarded 21 hectares Alsace domaine is run by two brothers, Maurice and Jacky Barthelmé, in the village of Wettolsheim near Colmar. Albert Mann, Maurice’s father-in-law, decided to use modern production tools without neglecting the constraints of the land. His philosophy was to make wine using the elements of the soil, without the help of fertilizers. The Barthelmé brothers have embraced his beliefs and are now at the forefront of a group of organic/ biodynamic Alsace producers. The goal of the estate is to produce wine that is in harmony with nature: “Wine is the memory of the grape and is capable of transmitting the taste of the earth”. Since 2000, the estate s wines have been organically certified by Ecocert. The brothers began practising biodynamic viticulture in 1997 in three Grands Crus vineyards and received biodynamic certification from Biodyvin in 2015. The viticultural practice is labour intensive, but it gives the wine the purest reflection of its terroir and own identity. In ploughing the vineyards, they encourage the roots to descend to a maximum depth, in order to capture the beneficial mineral elements from degraded rock below. The vineyard holding is divided up into a myriad of distinct plots, thus ensuring that the wines are as reflective of their precise origins, whilst also being as complex and multi-faceted as possible. The domaine owns vines in 5 separate Grand Cru sites, totalling 7 hectares. Hengst and Schlossberg are two of the better known of these. Hengst (meaning stallion) has a southeast orientation and shallow stony calcareous soil; whilst Schlossberg, with its steep, terraced slopes of granite, sand and shale, yields particularly expressive wines with pronounced floral bouquets. Both sites produce wines that age superbly.

With less than 8g/L of residual sugar, Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg from Albert Mann has a gloriously refreshing, mouthwatering palate with inviting aromas of fennel, grapefruit, honeydew melon and an underlying sea breeze minerality. Drinking enjoyably now, this bone dry Riesling also has the potential to evolve over the next 10 or more years.

This Gewurztraminer Grand Cru "Furstentum" has a brilliant, intense golden yellow color. It reveals fruits aromas of good maturity as, Mirabelle, apricot, mandarin, pink grapefruit, mango, candied citrus and green tea with a spicy touch due to a harvest slightly in surmaturity. This wine exalts to the second nose, notes of clove, nutmeg, cinnamon and pepper. Pure and generous: a real pleasure. Its taste confirms perfectly iragrance with a tiny presence of minerality.

Pinot Gris ‘Cuvée Albert From an assemblage of old vines. Bright, deeper yellow. The honeyed/roast nut aromas draw you in and then there is a lick of spicy pineapple. Full and rich on the palate with a touch of honey sweetness filling out the flavours and adding to the texture. For a wine with such lovely power it dances lightly on the finish!
