Sipp Mack Alsace Pinot Noir Elevé en Barriques 2011

An exceptional Pinot Noir d'Alsace!
  • The vintage
  • 2011 was an extremely well balanced vintage. The days at the end of the growing season were sunny and warm. Nights were cool. Aromas and fine acidities were preserved.
    We took the opportunity to vinifie the wines a bit drier to showcase the lovely crisp structures.
  • Terroir
  • Essentially calcareous-clay
  • In the vineyard
  • After a 3 year period of conversion beginning 2010, our vineyards are certified Organic in 2013 by Ecocert France. We are guided by our choice to develop the natural balance in our soils. All chemical herbicides and pesticides are replaced by precise, well timed organic treatments. Each vine’s extraordinary potential is developed by plowing and hoeing the soils. The grapes are hand harvested between mid September and October.
  • Winemaking
  • From selective low yields and precise hand harvesting, this Pinot Noir is destemmed immediately then cold macerated during a few days. The cap is punched down manually. The first juices are preserved after a 15 day fermentation. The entire lot is aged in 1-3 year old oak barrels. Bottling takes place in September after a light filtration.
