Farbe: goldgelb mit klarem Schimmer von guter Intensität. Brillanter, klarer, transparenter Rand. Der Wein ist jung. Nase: offen, angenehm und rassig, von schöner Intensität. Der Wein enthüllt dominierende Aromen kandierter Früchte, fruchtige Note, Grapefruit, Litschi, Passionsfrüchte sowie Gewürze, Kümmel, Ingwer. Die Luftzufuhr verstärkt das Ganze und betont die Gewürze, Nelken, Kreuzkümmel, Curry sowie den klassischen Blumencharakter. Die Nase ist prächtig, komplex, rassig , sie verbindet Tiefe und Reinheit in Sinnlichkeit. Geschmack: Fülle im Anklang, fleischig, zart. Der Alkoholgehalt ist vollmundig. Der Wein entwickelt sich zu Lebendigkeit und Spannung, von Spritzigkeit charakterisiert. Die Duftpalette ist rassig, kandierte Früche, exotische Früchte, Litschi, Grapefruit, würzig, Ingwer, Kümmel und eine Blumennote, Rose. Man spürt einen Hauch von Bitterkeit. Die Bitterkeit dauert an und die Lebendigkeit erfrischt die Struktur. Die Materie ist dicht und bekömmlich , sie behält eine große Reinheit. Die Duftpalette ist fulminant. Sehr schöner Wein.

Farbe: goldgelb mit klarem Schimmer, von schöner Intensität. Brillanter, klarer, durchsichtiger Rand. Der Wein ist jung. Nase: offen, angenehm, von mittlerer Intensität, komplex, dominiert von Quitte, Apfel, feinem Lakritz. Die Luftzufuhr verstärkt den fruchtigen Charakter und enthüllt eine pilzige, rauchige Note. Trotz der Prägung des Jahrgangs bereitet der Wein Vergnügen und hat einen guten Grad an Reife. Geschmack: Fülle im Anklang, ausgeglichener Alkoholgehalt. Der Wein entwickelt sich zu Nervosität und Spritzigkeit. Die Duftpalette bleibt komplex und sekundär. Der fruchtige Aspekt dominiert: Quitte, Renette. Im Ausklang eine gute Länge mit 8 Caudalies und eine klare Lebendigkeit. Die Struktur hat Boden und behält die Frische, die Aromapalette ist rassig. Ein guter Wein.


Winemaker's Notes:

This well-regarded Alsace domaine is run by two brothers, Maurice and Jacky Barthelmé in the village of Wettolsheim, near Colmar. Maurice, who took over here in 1984, is married to the daughter of the late Albert Mann who gave his name to the domaine. It's not a huge operation: they have 22 hectares in all, but five of these are in five different Grand Cru vineyards and a further two are in lieuxdits. All the wines from the Pinot Auxerrois to the stunning SGNs are fabulous. 'In the same way that a basketball team exhibits good teamwork, winemaking duties are shared between the two Barthelmé brothers, each of whom stands a good 6'6' (Jacky is at least 6'7' and plays semi-pro basketball, a fact well-known in the French press, and thus the basketball analogy). While one brother is in the vineyard, the other is in the caves. Using the best organic methods, their domaine is guided by rules of art, with carefully controlled yields, to obtain grapes of elevated maturity with rich and complex substance. These superb grapes are then transformed in a chai of gleaming stainless steel, conceived in the style of an American winery, which allows the production of wines that are clean and pure and where often the initial rich constitution of the grapes comes to light. In this modern oenology their clay-limestone soils seem to be especially favoured because of their structure' - Revue du Vin de France.
