The 2019 Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg exhibits a clear and intense yellow color and an impressively ripe, intense and elegant, complex but also refined bouquet with lemony and fine, flinty terroir aromas. Based on old vines and aged in stainless steel for nine months without undergoing malolactic fermentation, this is a very elegant, saline and vertically structured Riesling with great intensity and a saline finish. The fruit is round and refined, very elegant and carried by a substantial mineral spine as well as remarkably fine crystalline and saline acidity. This is an impressive, intense and textured, finely tannic Schlossberg bottled with 13% stated alcohol.

Albert Mann is a very progressive, organically-run domaine that ranks among the very top of Alsace producers. Since 1984, it has been run by Jacky and Maurice Barthelmé, the latter being married to Marie-Claire, granddaughter of the late Albert Mann. The family farms land on Grands Crus Hengst (Wintzenheim) and Steingrubler (Wettolsheim) and in all, the domaine covers 19 hectares in as many as 8 communes. The family also has close family ties with the owners of Paul Blanck in Kientzheim and as a result they also farm on the two fabled Grands Crus of Kientzheim and Furstentum and Schlossberg. The hallmark of the estate's wine style is power with full respect for the terroir. They work with high ecological ambitions, prune hard and harvest very low yields. No chemicals are used in the vineyards. The overall result is complex wines with superior balance and outstanding cellaring potential.
