Albert Mann Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Persistent and Easygoing Musky with citrus fruits, hazelnut and spring flowers on the nose. Fat, supple and slightly sweet, but with good shape to its creamy stone fruit and spice flavors. A persistent, easygoing midweight.

Albert Mann:
The birth of the Domaine Albert Mann is the fruit of the joint efforts of two big viticultural families, Mann and Barthelmé. The Mann's have been winegrowers since the beginning of the 17th century, and Barthelmé since 1654. Today the brothers, Maurice and Jacky Barthelmé, assisted by their wives, Marie-Claire and Marie-Thérèse, manage the family estate. The Domaine Albert Mann is located in W... Read more
The birth of the Domaine Albert Mann is the fruit of the joint efforts of two big viticultural families, Mann and Barthelmé. The Mann's have been winegrowers since the beginning of the 17th century, and Barthelmé since 1654. Today the brothers, Maurice and Jacky Barthelmé, assisted by their wives, Marie-Claire and Marie-Thérèse, manage the family estate. The Domaine Albert Mann is located in Wettolsheim, a small village in the south of Alsace, 1.3 miles away from Colmar. The vineyards cover an area of 47 acres spread on 8 communes. The domaine practices organic viticulture. The grapes are hand harvested, and then slowly extracted to get clear juice that doesn't need any supply of oenological products, with the exception of a small quantity of sulfur. After a fermentation of several months, the wines stay in contact with their lees that nourish them and that, at the same time, stabilize them naturally. The wines are bottled at waning moon in order to preserve the fruit.

Jacky and Maurice Barthelme's 2007 Pinot Blanc - a blend of roughly equal parts Auxerrois and true Pinot Blanc - is once again a marvelous reminder of how wonderful and versatile this genre of Alsace wine can be (but nowadays so seldom is). Alluring aromas of fresh apricot, tangerine zest and shrimp shell set the scene for a generous mouthful of pit- and citrus-fruits that strikes a superb balance between refreshment and creaminess of texture. Nor is there any lack of mineral interest here, with subtle saline savory, and chalky suggestions. Enjoy this over the next 18 months. (If this text - and the score - sounds familiar, that is merely a reflection of the consistent quality that accrues to this release!)

Light and bright, with crisp acidity and fresh flavors of lemon zest, beeswax and chamomile. Drink now.

Pale color. White peach and acacia flower on the pure nose. Juicy and just off-dry, with lovely cut and precision to the flavors of lemon, peach and white flowers. Not especially complex but utterly delicious.



Persistent and Easygoing Musky with citrus fruits, hazelnut and spring flowers on the nose. Fat, supple and slightly sweet, but with good shape to its creamy stone fruit and spice flavors. A persistent, easygoing midweight.
