The birth of Domaine Albert Mann is the fruit of the joint efforts of two big winemaker families, Mann and Barthelmé. Mann's are winegrowers since the beginning of the 17th century and Barthelmé's since 1654. Today both brothers, Maurice and Jacky Barthelmé, with theirs wives, Marie-Claire and Marie-Thérèse, manage the family estate. The goal of the estate is to produce wine that is in harmony with nature. Wine is the memory of the grape and is capable of transmitting the taste of the earth.
Since 2000, the estate's wine have been organically certified by Ecocert. We began practising biodynamic viticulture in 1997 in three Grands Crus vineyards. Over the following years, we applied biodynamics across the entirety of our estate and since 2010, we have the biodynamic certification from Biodyvin.
The viticultural practice is labour intensive and more costly but it gives the wine the purest reflection of its terroir and its own identity. In plowing the vineyards, we manage to make the roots go down to a maximum depth to capture the minerals of the rock degradation.
