Vivid straw-green. Complex aromas of lemon, apple, minerals and smoke. Very closed and tight on the palate, but at once powerful and ripe, offering saline, fresh citrus and smoky flavors. Finishes long, classically dry (6 g/L residual sugar and 8.1 g/L total acidity) and austere, and is yet another very flavorful wine I tasted from Mann this year without much in the way of octane strength (12.5% alcohol). These grapes were harvested on October 17; according to Marie-Thérèse Barthelmé, the 2016 Schlossberg has the balance of the standout 2008 they made from this vineyard. A real knockout.

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.

Notes: 11 g/l – rs. Schlossberg lies above the commune of Kayserberg and is composed of a type of grey granite with a southern aspect. It is almost all terraced as it is extremely steep and is one of the greatest sites in Alsace for Riesling.
