Alsace

Domaine Sipp Mack  Pinot Gris Tradition 2015 - 90 pts

"Tropical notions of mango and pineapple hover and announce the richness of the ripe juicy pear that abounds on nose and palate. The palate is easy and fruit-driven, fluid and harmonious with a counterbalance of zesty freshness. The finish is dry and has a lovely pure echo. " - AK, Aug. 1, 2017

Domaine Sipp Mack  Gewurztraminer Vieilles Vignes 2015 - 90 pts

"A touch of passion fruit clings to the peachy aromas on the nose. The palate is full of generously rounded peach and the mouthfeel is almost creamy. A touch of residual sugar favors the peach. A hint of rose petal perfumes the fresh round body. The finish is off dry and long." – AK, Aug. 1, 2017

Domaine Sipp Mack  Riesling Vieilles Vignes 2014 - 91 pts

"The nose is subdued and so is the palate: the aromas need air to unfold. There is richness here and concentration—a pithy structuring edge but also a deep core of lemony zestiness that informs the long finish. This will improve with bottle age." – AK, Aug. 1, 2017

 

Bordeaux

Château Lauduc  Classic Rose 2016

"Light and fruity, this is a crisp wine with good acidity. A tangy character and a yeasty edge." – RV, Aug. 1, 2017

Château Lauduc  Classic Blanc 2016

"This wine is soft and rounded. It does have plenty of acidity but that is only a part of a ripe, smooth whole. The lemon fruitiness and touch of spice give the aftertaste a great lift." – RV, Aug. 1, 2017
