Sipp Mack Alsace Pinot Noir Vieilles Vignes 2017 FR-BIO-01


Goumand and fruity!
  • The vintage
  • A very early harvest with excellent quality and small yields characterize the 2017 vintage.
    Following a late spring freeze, the volumes were significantly reduced compared to the 2016 harvest. Excellent weather conditions throughout the summer encouraged full ripeness and the development of ideal acidities needed to create outstanding Alsace wines. Harvest of absolutely perfect grapes began the first week of Sept. In the cellar a few months later, the wines show fabulous, aromatic personalities already. The 2017 vintage will age well so we suggest to pick up extra bottles for aging and enjoying in a couple of years.
  • Terroir
  • calcareous clay soil
  • 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
  • Harvested at perfect ripeness, our Pinot Noir grapes are destemmed immediately then cold macerated for a few days. The first juices and the end of each press are kept separately after fermenting about 10 days. The final Pinot Noir Vieilles Vignes blend is 20% 2 year old oak barrel and 80% stainless steel tanks. The wine is bottled in late September.
