The word 'gorgeous' comes to mind when tasting this Pinot Gris from the lie-dit (essentially a single vineyard) of Letzenberg, which is really coming into its own with a tickle of bottle age.
It has a deliciously expressive nose that brings together white floral notes, citrus and bruised apples. The palate is anything but shy, with plenty of oomph in flavour and a spritzy acidity that dances on the tongue, perfectly balancing out the weight and texture. If only all Pinot Gris' could be like this - we can't help but continually reach for a second glass!
Jean-Louis, Fabienne and Sébastien are a family of winemakers dedicated to producing exceptional, terroir-driven wines from the picturesque commune of Eguisheim in Alsace.
Domaine Mann is a winery with the ability to distil the terroir of Alsace into each bottle they make. Focus is given to individual parcels within their 13 hectares of biodynamically farmed vineyards; each wine is crafted in such a way that every plot's individual terroir shines through, with some only producing 150 bottles a vintage. Their vintage Crémant is a must-try; it is wonderfully elegant, rich, and complex with Sebastien's experience working at renowned Grower Champagne producer Vouette et Sorbée clearly evident.
These wines are elegant and alive, displaying thrilling minerality and are truly delicious. If you have previously shied away from Alsace before, these are the perfect way to reacquaint yourself with this diverse region
