'From the calcareous marl and sandstone soils of the steep and south-facing Grand Cru Hengst, the 2013 Pinot Noir Grand H was picked October 2 with a yield of only 29 hl/ha. The wine starts very clear and deep on the nose, very precise. Highly elegant and intense on the palate, with deep and ripe cherry and black berry aromas, a lovely acidity and firm but very fine tannins, this exceptional Alsatian Pinot Noir reveals a great purity and a powerful and very persistent finish. Still very young but a remarkable liaison of purity and freshness, power, structure and elegance. The wine was fermented in 25% new oak with 60% whole clusters and slightly filtered before bottling. Maurice says the Hengst always has more power, strength and tannins compared to the corresponding Pinot Grand P from the Pfersigberg. "It's more a Northern Rhône style," he adds. Drink: 2017-2030' (Oct15)

Domaine Albert Mann sits firmly in the top rank of Alsatian wine producers. The quality of wines from here is always incredibly consistent, but at the same time has been on a constant upward curve; a fact that must be in part related to the estate’s conversion to biodynamic viticulture. Brothers Jacky and Maurice Barthelme consistently produce wines of richness, concentration and intensity, while never losing sight of terroir.
