From an assemblage of Muscat Ottonel and Muscat d’Alsace grown on clay-limestone and gravels soil located in Wettolsheim, Kientzheim and Sigolsheim. Great expression of the grape variety. Fruity but dry.
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.
'(an 80/20 blend of Muscat Ottonel and Muscat d’Alsace): Straw-green. Discreetly floral and minty on the nose. Also delicate on the palate, with vibrant jasmine and lemon verbena flavors helping it seem less rich and oily than the 2013. Finishes classically dry and clean, with very good persistence if less concentration than the 2013.'
