|Caractère du vin||Sec|
Various plots of vines on the top of the hillsides around Ribeauvillé.
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. The vines of this Ribeauvillé are located on limy, chalky and sand stony soils on the south facing hillsides of Ribeauvillé.

The 2020 vintage starts with a very mild 2019-2020 winter. After an early bud burst following a mild spring, stable, dry and mostly windy conditions prevailed for several weeks. The return of cooler and stormy conditions in summer ensured a correct water supply, a good ripening of the grapes and the preservation of their freshness. The harvest is again early and gives us balanced and ripe wines.
