Two brothers, Maurice and Jacky Barthelmé in the village of Wettolsheim, near Colmar, run this well regarded Alsace Domaine. Maurice, who took over here in 1984, is married to the granddaughter 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.
Pale yellow in colour with light green reflections. It has a beautiful aromatic expression with ripe fruits such as white peach and pear alongside ginger. Its floral bouquet develops aromas of linden and acacia. This is a dry and seductive wine, with a nice freshness at the end.
