A beautiful deep and intense red color with glints of purple (a sign of its youth). A nose of red and black fruits. A good structure, fruity, ample and long on the palate. A wine in full phase of development toward a fine state of balance.
An ideal accompaniment to cold meats and salads, poultry and white meat, red meat and game, and finally with cheese. To drink immediately, but its tannins will become rounder with ageing.
ABOUT LOUIS SIPP
During World War I, while her husband, Louis, was fighting on the Eastern Front, pioneering matriarch Louise Sipp acquired the first plots to build her family’s Alsace vineyard. The land she purchased is today recognized as one of three Grand Cru near the town of Ribeauvillé. Due to a combination of the ample sunlight on the mountainside and the rich clay and mineral composition of the alpine soil, Kirchberg wines are renowned for their exceptional richness and ripeness. Therefore, it is not surprising that the Sipp House quickly rose to prominence in the region. With the help of their son, Auguste, Louise and Louis continued to grow their estate and began receiving distinctions and awards for their wines in the 1920s.
Today, a team of 20 people—led by Etienne Sipp, grandson of Louis and Louise—continues the tradition and works daily to create wines that capture the true nature of Ribeauvillé vineyards.
