Domaine Albert Mann
About This Vineyard
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 in 1984, is married to the grand-daughter 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. They’ve taken an organic approach to farming, leading to some wonderful organic wines like the Schlossberg Riesling, which is a brilliantly tightly-focused, mineralic interpretation of this great grape.
