THE HACHETTE WINE GUIDE 2012
Sipp Mack Pinot Gris Vendanges Tardives Amélie 2007 *
The wedding, 1959, of Francois Sipp from Ribeauvillé and Marie Louise Mack from Hunawihr marked the beginning of this 15 Ha family winery. The marriage of Jacques Sipp and Laura, a University of California at Davis graduate, added an internatinal dimension to the domaine.
The winery presents this intense golden and amber colored late harvest Alsace wine with aromas of dried apricots, quince and grilled toast. On the palette, the wine is rich, generous and harmonious. Lovely to drink now, but may be conserved another 4-5 years. (Residual sugar : 106g/l.)
