Caractère du vinSec




Various locations around Ribeauvillé: Scherbengans, Burgweg, Castel. 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 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 characterized by silt-laden deposits, originally loessial, and by glacis and sandy alluvium in the valley and on the plain. MUSCAT is also usually found in lighter soils which are early-fruiting, well-exposed and shielded from the wind (so as to protect the flower) such as Castel and Scherbengans.

Certified organic grapes for an enhanced terroir expression:

Started in 2005, our conversion to organic production took a concrete form three years later in 2008 with the ECOCERT certification. Since 2012, all the cellar operations are also covered by the European specification so that we can now speak about organic wines.

Wine character:

The wine presents a pale-yellow color with shimmers of green. The nose is fine and elegant, recalling the Muscat grape. It shows a lovely expression of the fruit on the palate and exhibits the typical freshness of this grape variety harvested fully mature. A round wine finishing on freshness and pleasure.

Tips for consuming:

Ideal as an aperitif or to serve at a reception. Can be served with asparagus. Will accompany strawberries well.
To be appreciated immediately or within 2 to 3 years, in order to benefit from the fullest expression of the fruit.


Muscat has always been taken in the very first days of the harvest, so as to avoid a degradation of the Muscat flavors. That is because after its period of maturity there is a significant fall in the concentration of its aromas (terpenols, linalols, citonellols, nerols and geraniols).

The 2019 vintage:

This new vintage follows the very generous 2018 vintage which did not always allow the vines to build up reserves. With a dry Autumn 2018 and capricious weather conditions the start of the growth got very heterogeneous. The cold temperature end of April and beginning of May did not improve the situation either and induced very slow growth of the vegetation. Some heavy rains in June, followed by extreme temperatures in July added more stress to the vines.
However, the harvest could start on September 12th and lasted until October 15th. The conditions were not stable at all with hot days and cooler ones. Luckily no heavy precipitations occurred.
Finally, we harvested nice and ripe grapes with great balance.
