Vigneron indépendant en Alsace
Jean-Guillaume SIPP is officially the head of the Domain since 2014. After his training at the Lycée Agricole in Rouffach, he followed courses with many winemakers including Domaines Zind-Humbrecht in Alsace, Olivier Leflaive in Burgundy, Marcel Guigal in Ampuis in the Rhône and the Domaine Mont-Redon in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. He has also approached other New World vineyards, such as Chile, Argentina, South Africa and New Zealand.
Under his leadership, the tillage is even more advanced than before and the wines have gained in precision. The family has a wide choice of terroirs, located in five municipalities, with the three Grand Cru Kirchberg, Osterberg and Altenberg of Bergheim as florets. Very nice parcel wines appeared during the 2014 vintage, notably the Grossberg and the Haguenau. These offer a good compromise between generics and grands crus. The range presented is unquestionably quality, the Rieslings being the strong point of the field.
Jean-Jacques and Martine, with their son Jean-Guillaume, are working together to ensure that the reputation of Domaine's wines is recognized across borders.
