REGION Alsace, France
Mineraly - Savoury - Lime
Two brothers, Maurice and Jacky Barthelmé in the village of Wettolsheim, near Colmar, run this well regarded Alsace Domaine. Maurice, who took over here in 1984, is married to the granddaughter of the late Albert Mann who gave his name to the Domaine. It’s not a huge operation: they have 19 hectares in all, but five of these are in five different Grand Cru vineyards and a further two are in lieux-dits.
The expressive nose shows beautiful fruity flavours of citrus fruits such as lemon. The attack on the palate is lively and underlined by a fine minerality.
