This beautiful wine from the Grand Cru Wineck-Schlossberg vineyard has impressive freshness, complexity, and compact acidity with a powerful yet supple body and fine, steely minerality on the finish. There is great precision on the pure, dry palate which provides flavors of lemon, peach, apricot, violets, and tangerine with the slightest hint of petrol. An aperitif wine and to accompany a meal, perfect with roasted poultry (guinea fowl, roasted chicken), veal loin, fish, fresh goat's and ewe's cheeses. Its potential for aging will be up to 10 years.
ABOUT DOMAINE ALBERT MANN
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.
