Owned by Jean-Jacques Sipp, a winegrower since 1973, this family owned domaine is now assured of a successor since Jean-Jacques' son Jean-Guillaume began working on the estate following completion of his training and work experience with numerous wine-growers around the world. Domaine Jean Sipp has 50 plots of land on the territory of five different villages growing seven Alsatian grape varieties covering a total area of 23 hectares. The appellations include 'Alsace' and 'Alsace Grand Cru'. The quality and diversity of these wines coupled with Jean-Jacques' philosophy of respecting the grape and using organic methods are immediately evident.

The wine is hand harvested into small containers and put into a pneumatic press within 2 hours. Gently pressed over an 8 hour cycle. The juice was settled then fermented in stainless steel and 50hl wooden tuns at a maximum of 20C over 6 weeks. Aged on the fine lees for 6 months before bottling.
With a rich lemon coloured with an expressive nose of stone fruit with hints of white flowers. The palate has hints of grapefruit, acacia flowers and notes of white peach and lime. Full and fruity, it is just off-dry, with fine balancing acidity and a long mineral finish.
This is a very versatile wine that matches many medium weight dishes. Particularly good with quiche, roast chicken and cold meats.
