The 2016 Riesling Cuvee Albert is a vineyard selection, from mostly limestone parcel, and is made as a homage to Albert Mann. This racy, lively Riesling offers lots of citrus, white flowers, tangerine and salty mineral-like nuances on the nose. Medium-bodied, exotic, and tangy, with enough acidity to make you salivate, drink it anytime over the coming decade.

Bright straw-green. Lime, grapefruit and bergamot aromas are complicated by a hint of diesel fuel. Enters fruity and vibrant, then more stern and almost tight in the middle, with slightly austere flavors of fresh citrus and herbs on the medium-long, zingy finish. Uncomplicated Riesling that tastes dry (6 g/L residual sugar and 8.1 g/L total acidity) and that will match well with a multitude of foods. The grapes for this wine were harvested from three different parcels of wines, one plot on October 7, another on October 19 and yet another on October 27, in areas near the towns of Wettolsheim and Kintzheim (mostly granitic and clay-calcareous soils). 12.5% alcohol. Marie-Thérèse Barthelmé told me this is her “diplomat wine,” as its uncomplicated nature and bright, fruity flavors seem to appeal to almost everyone.
