Albert Mann Gewürztraminer Alsace Aoc 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points David Schildknecht (Wine Advocate): ...smells of brown-spiced, honey-drenched pears, offers enveloping richness but also satisfying juiciness on the palate, and finishes with a disarming, almost disconcerting sense of minerality (salt, chalk, iodine) one seldom encounters in a Gewurztraminer, much less one this ripe and sweet...

The birth of the Domaine Albert Mann is the fruit of the joint efforts of two big viticultural families, Mann and Barthelmé. The Mann's have been winegrowers since the beginning of the 17th century, and Barthelmé since 1654. Today the brothers, Maurice and Jacky Barthelmé, assisted by their wives, Marie-Claire and Marie-Thérèse, manage the family estate. The Domaine Albert Mann is located in Wettolsheim, a small village in the south of Alsace, 1.3 miles away from Colmar. The vineyards cover an area of 47 acres spread on 8 communes. The domaine practices organic viticulture. The grapes are hand harvested, and then slowly extracted to get clear juice that doesn't need any supply of oenological products, with the exception of a small quantity of sulfur. After a fermentation of several months, the wines stay in contact with their lees that nourish them and that, at the same time, stabilize them naturally. The wines are bottled at waning moon in order to preserve the fruit.

Farbe: blassgoldgelb, von schöner Intensität mit klarem Schimmer. Feiner, klarer, durchsichtiger und brillanter Rand. Nase: offen, rassig. Der Wein enthüllt dominierende überreife Fruchtaromen, Zitrusfrüchte, Grapefruit, Orange, Litschi, Blumennote, Rose, Lorbeer, Gewürze. Die Luftzufuhr verstärkt den Blumencharakter, Rose, und lässte eine feine rauchige Note erscheinen, Feuerstein, mineralische Note. Die Nase zeigt die schöne Reife der Trauben mit Üppigkeit und Sinnlichkeit, sehr angenehm Geschmack: Fülle und Milde im Anklang. Der Wein entwickelt sich zu einer klaren Lebendigkeit, wo die Duftpalette das kandierte, exotische, blumige Aroma enthüllt, Litschi sowie sekundäre Noten. Man spürt eine feine Bitterkeit. Schöne Länge im Abklang und feine, erfrischende Lebendigkeit. Die Struktur zeigt sich füllig, fleischig, würzig , die unterschwellige Lebendigkeit erfrischt gut die Fülle des Weins, schöne aromatische Reinheit.
