Alsace

Domaine Sipp Mack  Pinot Noir Tradition 2015 - 88 pts

“Hints of earth are the only aromas on the nose, which seems devoid of fruit. The palate has a similar leafy earthiness and slight berry aromas. There are bitter edges on the very slender, soft and easy body. This has a picnic-style rusticity about it and a very clean and dry finish.” – AK, April 1, 2017

Domaine Sipp Mack  Pinot Blanc 2015 - 88 pts

“Gentle but lovely hints of yellow mirabelle plum are just perceptible on the nose. The palate is light and lithe and meets the scented fruit of the nose with an earthier roundness.” – AK, April 1, 2017

Domaine Sipp Mack  Pinot Gris Grand Cru Rosacker 2013 - 93 pts

“Generous hints of ripe and dried pear are edged with gentlest vanilla spice and promise a rich palate, which duly follows but remains dry and fresh. All the ripe generous pear fruit is made even juicier by pervading lemony freshness. There is zesty texture, too, and a hint of earth and stone. Both concentration and freshness are impressive. The finish is totally dry and lasting.” – AK, April 1, 2017

Domaine Sipp Mack  Riesling Grand Cru Osterberg 2014 - 95 pts

“There is just a touch of peach amidst the green and yellow apple notes. The palate adds a stony earthy touch, as well as a hint of lanoline, and has an impressive core of fruit that radiates throughout this wine with pure apple flavor and crisp freshness. This strikes a high soprano note of absolute purity. The body is taut and bone-dry, the finish is clean and lasting. Gorgeous now but totally built to last. Drink now through 2035.” – AK, April 1, 2017
