Bright golden-tinged straw-yellow. Sweet spices, tangerine jelly, bitter orange jam and candied violet on the nose and palate. Very long and very Gewürz, presenting a round but refined mouthfeel. Tastes nothing like Mann’s 2016 Gewürz Steingrubler, and showcases just what a difference terroir can make in wines. The violet note is typical of the Furstentum; the “vieilles vignes” moniker refers to the fact that these vines are at least 45 years old. This is another big Gewürz but it comes across as relatively light on its feet (13% alcohol, 32 g/L residual sugar and 4.5 g/L total acidity). Knockout stuff. Drink:2020-2028 (Apr08)

This Gewurztraminer 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. Its taste confirms perfectly its fragrance with a tiny presence of minerality. Great aging potential.

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.
