About Domaine Albert Mann
Domaine Albert Mann touts 19 hectares under vine, including 5 hectares worth of Grand Cru Vineyards...
95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2008
(11% alcohol, 140 g/l r.s. and 4.1 acidity) Bright yellow. Explosive aromas of mirabelle, cured meat, rose petal, lilac, cinnamon, curry and lichee; utterly gewurztraminer despite the extreme level of ripeness. Offers great life in the mouth; airy and not at all heavy, with superb aromatic lift to the flavors of mirabelle dried flowers and soft spices. A very classy SGN with a remarkably light touch. Really saturates the palate with perfume. Again, this tastes higher in acidity than the numbers suggest. This could make a strong argument for Furstentum being one of Alsace's premier sites for gewurztraminer; indeed, Maurice Barthelme told me that Mann can achieve this level of quality every two or three years!
