Various locations from the hillsides around Ribeauvillé.
Type of soil:
The Louis SIPP parcels of land are situated in the geological fracture zone of Ribeauvillé. They constitute a territory which is highly geologically fragmented. They are above all areas with hard chalk, clay and marl from the Liassic and Triassic periods, sandstone clay, and calcareous, chalky conglomerates from the Oligocene period. The area is also characterised by silt-laden deposits, originally loessial, and by glacis and sandy alluvium in the valley and on the plain. PINOT NOIR is also found in soils which are relatively heavy, (where clay is present), chalky, early fruiting and bearing a low yield. A high level of maturity as well as perfectly sound grapes are necessary to bring out the colour and the fruit of this grape variety more used to grow in more southern regions.
