Tasted from the barrels, the 2015 Pinot Noir Clos de la Faille has a very clear, ripe and concentrated bouquet with spicy and smoky bouquet. On the palate this is a sweet, ripe, finessed and elegant Pinot; it has a long and intense, super ripe cherry and rather coolish black berry fruit. The finish is intensely aromatic and fruity, but there is no lack of finesse and elegance. An impressively fine Pinot from a super ripe vintage.
Score: (89-90) points -- Stephan Reinhardt, RobertParker.com, Feb 2017
Comments: The dress is cherry red. The nose is expressive on small red fruits with pretty toasty notes. The attack on the palate is pleasant with tannins present but not dominant, which bring a nice finish, highlighted by a fine acidity. It is still a little marked by its breeding, this wine will be refined after a few months in bottles.
Food pairing : Veal tenderloin with ceps sauce, vegetables and polenta. Pale steak, celery puree and Granny Smith apple. Braised partridge with chanterelles. The label: "From my warm encounter with the Domaine Albert Mann and the first label orders, after long conversations I set a stylistic line that meets both the requirements of my artistic concerns and the extraordinary demands of are the hallmark of these wines and those who make them.This last label is no exception to the rule, even if, as its name "Clos de la Faille" suggested to me, a certain rupture is perceptible in very limited use of color and in the graphic aspect.
