Domaine Albert Mann. The estate was awarded the distinction of «Winegrowe of the year 2012» by the magazine «Revue du Vin de France». One must agree that the Mann quatuor: Marie Thérèse, Jacky, Marie-Claire and Maurice, are full of talent and know-how. The vineyard holds the organic certification from Ecocert since 2000. More work, more things to worry about but nothing that would stop them, the results speak for themselves. The 21 hectares are separated into small islands, over five Grand Crus, two villages and an enclosed vineyard. The Clos de la Faille sits on shingle of rosy, yellow and gray sandstones, which provides great ground for pinot noir and gives the wine character.
Small innovation and revolution, since the 2004 vintage, screw tops are used for the Vins de Tradition range. Fruity wines that are ready to drink within four to five years. Each vintage has a new label illustrated by François Bruetschy, an artist painter who translates the identity of the estate’s wines in a poetic manner. 13 rue du Château 68920 Wettolsheim – France. www.albertmann.com
