Domaine Albert Mann Pinot Blanc Auxerrois 2018
REGION: Alsace, France
GRAPE: Auxerrois & Pinot Blanc
White Peach - Pear - Ginger
Ripe pear, green apple and lime blossom characterise Albert Mann Pinot Blanc Auxerrois 2017. Refreshing with a crisp acidity and an underlying mineral backbone, this wine has a long, persistent finish and finesse.
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.
