  • Albert Mann Gewurztraminer Furstentum Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes 2019

    £41.95

    “The 2019 Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Furstentum Vieilles Vignes offers a clear, intense and refined bouquet of bright fruits intertwined with lemony and smoky notes. Rich and round on the palate, this is a smooth and elegant, well balanced and quiet-flowing Gewurztraminer with fine salinity and delicate bitters on the finish. Not very expansive but elegant and linear. 14% stated alcohol with 31 grams per liter of residual sugar. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine in May 2022. Drink: 2027-2040. 92+ points”

  • Albert Mann Pinot Blanc/Auxerrois 2022

    £24.49

    “In 1984, Albert Mann was a small winegrower with just 2.5 hectares/6 acres of vines when his daughter Marie-Claire married Maurice Barthelmé. The domaine had bottled its own wines since 1947, and Maurice Barthelmé set the course for expansion. His brother Jacky Barthelmé joined the company in 1989. The brothers were determined to make quality wine and wanted the best sites. They started applying biodynamic farming methods in 1997 but did not become certified until 2017. Today, the estate owns 25 hectares/62 acres with holdings in seven grand crus and exports to 45 countries. Maurice Barthelmé and Marie-Claire Mann are now retired, and Jacky Barthelmé’s son Antoine has joined the domaine to work in the vineyards and cellar. Pauline Barthelmé, Maurice’s daughter, joined the estate in 2022 on the commercial side. Antoine Barthelmé studied in Beaune and followed this with stints at Alphonse Mellot in Sancerre, Rippon in Central Otago, Stéphane Derenoncourt’s consultancy in Bordeaux and Georges Noëllat in Vosne-Romanée. Domaine Albert Mann planted Pinot Noir in the grand cru sites of Hengst and Pfersigberg as early as 1963; the house is a beacon for that variety today. Albert Mann is another top estate at the vanguard of Alsace. Jacky Barthelmé’s attention to detail is almost obsessive, as is his desire to express his sites. An extraordinary amount of passion informs the ethos of the estate that can be felt in the exceptional and supremely expressive wines – especially in the gorgeous Pinot Noirs.”

  • Albert Mann Pinot Gris Cuvee Albert 2019

    £31.49

    “The 2019 Pinot Gris Cuvée Albert is from old vines cultivated in the limestone terroirs Rosenberg and Altenbourg. The wine shows a deep and intense yet also pure and expressive bouquet with serious, saline and stony terroir notes intertwined with ripe fruit aromas. Dense and textured on the palate, this is a pure, intense, lush and substantial as well as elegant Pinot Gris with fine tannins, lingering salinity and mineral structure. This is a superb dry Pinot Gris that was bottled in May 2020. Drink: 2022-2040. 92 points”

  • Albert Mann Riesling Schlossberg Grand Cru 2020

    £79.95

    “The 2020 Riesling is made from four plots with an average vine age of 35 years, running along the mid-slope of the granitic Schlossberg Grand Cru. The nose is full of ripe, expressive orange peel. The palate is dense, concentrated, yet utterly linear with a stony, lemony acidity that cuts through everything. The finish is salty like wet stone, mouth-watering, crystalline and utterly appetizing. (Bone-dry). Drinking window: 2025-2060. 95 points

  • Albert Vevey Blanc de Morgex et La Salle 2018

    £34.99

    “Medium straw-green-yellow. Ripe, musky and floral aromas of lemon drop, butter, mint, oatmeal and pomaceous orchard fruit. Sweet and juicy, with good cut and spice character; there’s nothing hard about this fresh Blanc de Morgex et La Salle. Closes with nicely persistent hints of white flowers, orange oil and resin. Makes an outstanding aperitif but is big enough to stand up to vegetable appetizers and delicately cooked freshwater fish entrées. Drinking window: 2019-2023. 92 points”

  • Aldo Conterno Barolo Bussia 2019

    £95.95

    “The 2019 Barolo Bussia is redolent of crushed red berry fruit, cedar, mint, spice, sweet pipe tobacco and orange peel. Firm and sinewy, with veins of insistent supporting tannin, the 2019 is a terrific example of the vintage and this bottling. Impressive. And gorgeous. Give it a few years to soften. Drinking window: 2024-2034. 92 points

    The 2019s are the finest wines I have tasted from Poderi Aldo Conterno in a long time. When Aldo Conterno passed away in 2012 he left the winery to his three sons, Giacomo, Franco and Stefano. In the ensuing years, my impression was often that the winery lacked clear direction. Numerous decisions were taken with the goal of improving quality, but those choices did not always show in the wines. They sure do in the 2019s. The four Barolos I tasted are all super-expressive and nuanced, with tons of character. As always, the Aldo Conterno wines have a bit more mid-palate richness than most super-classic Barolos and also a discreet touch of framing new oak. In 2019, the wines are impeccably balanced and beautifully done.”

  • Aldo Conterno Barolo Cicala 2017

    £129.99

    “The Poderi Aldo Conterno 2017 Barolo Bussia Cicala reveals a deep garnet color with some dark copper. Like the other 2017 wines from this celebrated producer, I can’t help but suspect that these areas of Bussia suffered from the heat and some of the other weather challenges associated with this growing season. A clear note of overt ripeness comes across as dried strawberry or sweet crème de cassis. The finish is similarly weighed down by the fruit weight and oak tannins. Drink: 2023-2028. 91 points”

  • Aldo Conterno Barolo Romirasco 2017

    £197.95

    “Opening to a dark color and robust consistency, the Poderi Aldo Conterno 2017 Barolo Bussia Romirasco is perhaps the most powerful of the four new releases reviewed here. Wearing broad shoulders and sporting a heavy gait over the palate, the wine sees a solid construction of dark berry and spicy or toasted oak aromas. There is a lot to behold in this bottle, and it definitely shows the potential to soften and relax with more cellar aging. However, you definitely need to put the bottle aside for many years. Drink: 2025-2043. 94 points”
