Golden-tinged yellow. Delicately spicy, honeyed notes of apple and pear. Fresh, sweet and very juicy flavors similar to the aromas. Finishes long and crisp, with a repeating note of apple. This wine showcases the juicy nature of the 2016 vintage; it’s rare to drink Auxerrois wines that are so fresh and lively. (As is almost always the case in Alsace, even though this wine is labeled “Pinot Blanc,” it is made with a large percentage of Auxerrois, a totally different variety.) This clocks in at 4 g/L residual sugar and 4.7 g/L total acidity and tastes dry. The grapes were harvested in two different passes, on September 20 and in October 13. Lots of flavors and only 12.5% alcohol; the blend is 80% Auxerrois and 20% Pinot Blanc.
91 points | Ian D'Agata,

A tasty Alsace with restrained but distinctive acidity and fruit. Tight nose of slightly sharp pear fruit and petrol. Palate of sweet and sour chewy pear and mildly sweet white grapefruit flavour. It's a beautiful and easygoing Auxerrois.

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.
